'O Holy Night' - Live Performance From Hillsong Worship

‘O Holy Night’ is one of the most beloved Christmas songs of all time. The beautiful lyrics truly remind us of the real reason for the season.

‘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,
Till 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.’

Poet and author Placide Cappea wrote this Christmas classic in 1843. Since that time, countless different artists have covered ‘O Holy Night’, each one adding their own unique style on the holiday tune. The song brings up such beautiful images and thoughts of our Savior, Jesus Christ. It was truly a glorious night when Jesus was born in that manger in Bethlehem. The angels rejoiced and the whole world received their King. I can just imagine the praise and celebration that went on to welcome Him into the world.

‘Fall on your knees! O hear the angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born;
O night divine, O night, O night Divine.’

These powerful words are the perfect way to let the world know of our King’s birth. Let us lift our hands together and sing of the good news.
‘Christ is the Lord! O praise His Name forever,
His power and glory evermore proclaim’

Who else wishes they could’ve been there on the night Christ was born? What a sight to behold.
