Christmas carols are pointers to CHRIST!

Oh man, *CHRST*mas is less than two weeks away!  I’m stoked.  I love all the preparations and traditions that come along with this season.  One of my favorite parts about *CHRIST*mas is the music.  Wow.  Have you ever just stopped and focused on the lyrics of Christmas carols?  Many of them are incredible.  I decided it would be a good idea to post some of my favorite *CHRIST*mas lyrics at different times during this season!  We sang this one at a *CHRIST*mas party at church last night, and the words really spoke to me.  Meditate on them.  This is the gospel: Christ came to redeem this fallen world to Himself (Colossians 1:20), and allow believers to see and savor His beauty forever!

Enjoy Christ this season!

::O Holy Night::
Adolphe Adam

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining;
It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth!
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope, the weary soul rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born!
O night, O holy night, O night divine!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming,
Here came the wise men from Orient land.
The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger,
In all our trials born to be our Friend!
He knows our need—to our weakness is no stranger.
Behold your King; before Him lowly bend!
Behold your King; before Him lowly bend!

Truly He taught us to love one another;
His law is love and His Gospel is peace.
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His Name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy Name!
Christ is the Lord! O praise His name forever!
His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim!
His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim!

About Joe Eaton

I praise God that my standing before Him has nothing to do with who I am or what I've done; it is found solely in the perfect life that Christ lived in my place, and His which atoned for my sin. "For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that IN HIM we might become the righteousness of God"..."There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."

    hey Joe…this is so funny because I went on an outreach this past Wednesday at a church with like 70 people and did a little talk about this exact same thing!!! Seriously, reading your blog felt like reading the notes about what I spoke on. Just thought that was cool!
    thanks for the blog!

    …And why do we only sing these kinds of songs during Christmas? That’s a great song.
