Music of the day – O Holy Night

I love this version of O Holy Night, because it reminds me of my sister who had a beautiful soprano voice and sang the solo in our church on Christmas Eve.

This is a comment on the YouTube video that moved me very much.

Whenever ‘fall on your knees’ is sung, I get the most amazing feeling of wanting – needing – to worship someone Higher than me. Its a natural thing, like breathing . It is within us all, whether we want it or not, this need to physically fall on our knees before our Creator God. I feel such joy…like I am going to my real home….heaven, where I will join singing with the multitude of angels. All l is well with the world, because we have a real living Saviour. No matter the choir, the denomination, no matter the belief, we are singing combined praise. I believe in Jesus, and I worship Him. Thank you Lord for saving me.

    This song is also special to me — I cannot even start to sing it without breaking into tears — for me it is the ultimate “I am not worthy” songs describing the birth of Jesus. During Advent and Christmas I listen to a lot of Christmas music alone — I contemplate the lyrics, the harmonic progressions, the majesty (in some songs), the humility (in other songs), or just the sheer joy of singing praise to God. As a get older, Christmas has become more introspective and reflective for me. I think that is part of what Matthew 6:6 is about: “But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”

    This is my favorite song to hear at Midnight Mass, which we won’t be going to this year, first time in so many years.
