What does it mean to celebrate Jesus’ birth?
Recording artist Danny Gokey explores the power of the Christmas season and the joy of Jesus’ birth.
One of the songs included on the album is Danny’s rendition of the classic Christmas hymn, “O Holy Night.”
“This song is so inspired by God and every service or church that listens to O Holy Night, there’s like a holy hush that comes across the congregation.”
Danny knew that “O Holy Night” is a favorite among Christians and he knew he wanted to put a fresh spin on the song.
“We wanted to sing it with all of our heart and soul and we wanted to put a heavenly feel on it.”
As you reflect on the lyrics to this song that has stood the test of time, ponder the amazing love of God that would compel Him to send His son on earth in such a humble way.
“O holy Night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the Soul felt its worth
A thrill of hope, our weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn’
Fall on your knees, oh, hear the angel’s 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 shall He break, for the slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful raise we
With all within us praise His holy name
Christ is the Lord, o praise His name forever.”
