O Holy Night

December 17, 2017 Speaker: Rich Hendricks Series: Carols

In the third part of our Carols series, we look at O Holy Night (French: Cantique de Noël), a well-known Christmas carol composed by Adolphe Adam in 1847 based on the French poem "Minuit, chrétiens" (Midnight, Christians). This carol has a surprising and intriguing story attached to it. Its lyrics give us three views of the birth of Christ--a view from heaven, a view from the manager, and a view from our own lives. Within the words of this song, the poet paints a picture of Luke Chapter 2 and the entrance of our savior into a world “in sin and pining, till He appeared."
