Blog Caroling 2015: O' Holy Night






Blog Caroling is back everyone for 2015!  This beautiful tradition was originally created by Footnote Maven many years ago. I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! Go and enjoy your loved ones company. Share stories and make new memories. 

I love me some Patti just like Mr. James Wright Chanel. I've decided to share this recent performance of O' Holy Night she sang with John Legend on TARAJI & TERRENCE'S WHITE HOT HOLIDAYS 2015. Sing along if you wish or just sit back and enjoy.

O' Holy Night
Composed by Adolphe Adam in 1847 to the French poem "Minuit, chretiens"(Midnight, Christians) by Placide Cappeau. Singing version created by John Sullivan Dwight

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 the Orient land.
The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger, 
In all our trials born to be our friend!

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!

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!

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!
