Christmas Melodies

Every-so-often, I find it enjoyable to sit at breakfast and instead of my typical readings, I flip through my Mom’s hymnal. Last week was no exception, as I wanted to read the Christmas songs.

I guess for Christmas hymns especially, since we only sing them one season of the year, I got to thinking that we miss a core part of the message when we don’t sing all the verses. It is very typical just to sing the first and last verses, along with the chorus. Likewise, there are so many melodies of Christmas that go unnoticed–carols we don’t typically sing that also share so much meaning in light of the Christmas Spirit.

As Christmas Day continues to approach, rejoice in life with the melodies of the season!

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!’

Luke 2:13-14 ESV

    So I was just looking through your blog posts to try and find what I thought you had posted at one time with your favorite Christmas hymn but didn’t see it – at least for this December….. anyway, what is your favorite Christmas hymn? Mine is O Holy Night =) XOXO, Megs

      I don’t think I really specifically stated a favorite, but “O Holy Night” is definitely one of them. This Christmas I also enjoyed “What Child is This?”, “Good Christian Men Rejoice,” “Child in a Manger,” and “Hark! The Herald Angels sing.” 🙂
