Music by: Parisian opera composer, Adolphe Charles Adam
Lyrics by: M. Cappeau de Roquemaure/Translated by: John Sullivan Dwight
Featuring: Brad Gordon

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6

Dedicated to: Our brothers, Rodney and Bradley. We know that having six sisters can be overwhelming. We love you both!
About the song: We like the story told of a Christmas Eve in 1870, during the Franco-Prussian war, when French and German troops were commemorating the holiday in trenches near each other. Suddenly, one of the Frenchmen stood and sang this chillingly beautiful Christmas song. No Germans fired at him; instead, one of their troops emerged and sang a German carol.

O Holy Night Music Clip

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 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 angel 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 chorus raise we
Let all within us praise His holy name

Christ is the Lord O praise His name forever
His pow'r and glory evermore proclaim
His pow'r and glory evermore proclaim
