Music is a huge part of our holiday festivities. Christmas music often helps us get into the holiday spirit, even when we're rushing around trying to get everything done. While some may enjoy the more secular-themed Christmas music, others prefer songs that sing of Jesus Christ, His birth and the priceless gift He gave mankind. One of these spiritually stirring songs is "O Holy Night" by Adolphe Adam, written in 1847.
A Utah Valley University, all-male a cappella group, VoiceLine, recently did a cover of NSYNC's rendition of "O Holy Night." The result is a flawless musical tribute to the birth of our Savior.
This popular tune focuses on the special night Jesus was born and gave hope to the "weary world." Indeed, no other person on the earth has given us so much reason to rejoice — reason for hope. He is the perfect example of how we should live.
Reflect on this special gift as you listen, and read the lyrics. While many of us know the first verse by heart, the lesser known verses are equally poignant — this season, and always.
