My Christmas Carol and a Gift for You . . . O Holy Night

"Long lay the world in sin and error pining. Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth. A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices" This is what Christmas is all about, so today, my "Christmas Carol" for you is "O Holy Night" by the David Crowder Band. Plus, if you follow this link you'll be able to download this song for FREE as a gift from the David Crowder Band!

I love this song and the way the band sings it - just look at the lyrics:

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 Spirit felt its worth. A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices, For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn. Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices! O night divine, o night when Christ was born; O night divine, o night, o night divine!

Truly He taught us to love one another, His law is love and His gospel is peace. Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother.
And in his name all oppression shall cease. Hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we, With all our hearts we praise His holy name. Christ is the Lord! Then ever, ever praise we, His power and glory ever more proclaim! Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices! O night divine, o night when Christ was born; O night divine, o night, o night divine!


Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

  1. OH Thank you for this! My father was an amazing tenor, who passed away in his late 80's in 2003. He was still going to nursing homes along with my uncle who is still alive at 94, and singing for the folks. I remember when I was young and he would always sing this song at Christmas time in our church. He really had an amazing voice, (reminded me of Bing Crosby)and you would get chills hearing him sing. HE was offered a professional contract when he was young but didn't feel that was the right thing for him. I love this song and it always reminds me of my fathers wonderful voice. I like this band also. Thank you for posting it.
