Forever Praise Him

My all time favorite Christmas hymn/song is Oh Holy Night. I love the version by Celine Dion and love to watch it on YouTube. The line in the the Celine Dion version of the song that raises goosebumps on my arm every time is "Christ is the Lord!The name forever praise we".

I can imagine myself with that large host of angels in heaven the night that Jesus was born. I believe that we all were joyous and sang praises as we watched from above Christ being born. We knew what this would mean for the world.
I love the Savior and all that represents and has done for all mankind. The spirit of Christ can be felt all throughout the world for all those who believe on His name. I am excited to celebrate his birth at this special time of year and have posted the lyrics to Oh Holy Night below. I hope you read these praises and feel His spirit. I also included a short video below that sums up today's message. Merry Christmas!

O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of Our dear Saviour's birth.
Long lay the world In sin and error pining,
'Til He appear'd And the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope The weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks A new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! O, hear the angels' voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born;
O night divine, O 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 come the wise men From Orient land.
The King of Kings Lay thus in lowly manger;
In all our trials Born to be our friend.
He knows our need, To our weakness is no stranger,
Behold your King! Before Him lowly bend!
Behold your King, Before Him lowly bend!
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.
Christ is the Lord! O praise His Name forever,
His power and glory Evermore proclaim.
His power and glory Evermore proclaim.
