Christmas Sing! O Come All Ye Faithful

December 10, 2018 Administrator

Welcome to week two of our Christmas Sing series! Last time, we sung Away in the Manger. How beautiful to imagine that our Savior chose to come in such a humbling way. It’s a reminder to all that he is for everyone. 

This week, we focus on the enthusiasm of the wise men.  On the night that Jesus was born, a special star rose in the sky, and wise men from the East saw it.  Not long after that, they started their journey to meet the King of Jews. Here is how the scripture says it.

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”

Matthew 2:1-2 NKJV

 The wise men traveled far to meet and worship Jesus, and when they finally met him, they lavished on him some of the best gifts. My prayer is that we all would be so diligent in our search and adoration of Jesus Christ. That is why our song for the week is O Come All Ye Faithful. Let those who have chosen to be faithful come to Jesus and come with joy. The first stanza is as follows.

O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant!

O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;

Come and behold him

Born the King of Angels:

O come, let us adore Him

O come, let us adore Him

O come, let us adore Him

Christ the Lord.
