O Holy Night

This is my favorite Christmas song. I blogged about it four years ago. It was written by a Frenchman, and the literal-ish translation from the French goes this way:

Christian midnight
It is the solemn hour
When the God-Man
Has descended unto us
To erase original sin
And by His Father stop corruption

The entire world trembles with hope
For this night that gives it a Savior

People to your knees
Await your Deliverance

Noel, Noel
Here is your Redeemer
Noel, Noel
Here is your Redeemer

You can listen to it in English. My daughter's friend who loves Josh Groban (and actually met him!), this is for you:

And for all of you, may your Christmas be blessedly filled with time spent with loved ones.

P.S. Happy 24th birthday to my baby girl!

That is so beautiful. But I think maybe Mary was younger...

Very nice...

Merry Christmas, Skyepuppy!

May you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and New Year's and may the coming year be filled peace and love and joy.

(Oh and I adore Josh Groban's's like a pure bit of heaven on earth!)
