My Favorite Christmas Song!!!!!!

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining;
It is the night of the 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, the weary soul 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, O holy night, O night divine!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming,
Here came the wise men from Orient land.
The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger,
In all our trials born to be our Friend!
He knows our need—to our weakness is no stranger.
Behold your King; before Him lowly bend!
Behold your King; before Him lowly bend!

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!


  1. I <3 me some Kelly Clarkson! Best AI winner EVER!!!

  2. I love this song, too!! I just watched the Carrie Underwood special tonight (taped on my DVR) and she sang this so beautifully!

  3. Summur...thank you so much for this post. This too is my very favorite Christmas song and so far this Christmas I had not heard it once! A million times I've heard Jingle Bell Rock and the Chipmunk song, but not this one. Kelly Clarkson brought tears to my eyes, what a glorious voice! Merry Christmas to you and your sweet little family!
