"Sounds like somebody needs to sing a Christmas Carol" TTA

My favorite Christmas Carol is Oh Holy Night. For me, it is the very essence of the spirit of Christmas. I cannot sing the line "Fall on your knees" without crying...EVER. I cannot imagine being alive at that time, and hearing of the birth of Jesus Christ, our Savior.

The other lines that mean a lot to me are: the thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices. For yonder brings a new and glorious morn.

O Holy night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior's birth
Long lay the world
In sin and error pining
'Till He appeared and the soul felt His worth
The thrill of hope,
The weary world rejoices
For yonder brings a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees
Oh, hear the angel's voices
Oh night divine
Oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine
Oh night, Oh night divine

And, I quite enjoy Josh Groban singing that song, so here it is for your enjoyment today!

I've been blogging like a mad women today, so be sure to scroll down to see these other posts:

I love O Holy Night too! It's just a great song! Jett said the other day, "this is not a Christmas Song mom! It's a church song!"
I like how it's both!

I love that song so much too. The Josh Groban version gives me chills every time I hear it. He sings it so beautifully!
