I Needed It Again

This is from my blog last year. I wrote then that on the day of that post, I needed to hear the words of the song. I'm feeling that same way today. It is so important for me to remember Who is truly in charge and that He has everything under control. Someday, I will kneel before Him...


 I had sort of decided to save this Christmas song until closer to Christmas but I needed these words today so maybe someone else might need them too.  Oh the peace and joy that fills me when I truly listen with my heart to the message of this song. 

 Listen to the song, or read the words as many times as necessary until the message truly touches your heart.


The lyrics I've typed do not exactly match the lyrics that are sung but everyone has their own version of this song. I think it speaks for itself so I'm not going to muck it up with a lot of my ramblings.

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 appeared and the Soul felt its worth. 

(I needed those words today)

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
O night divine, Oh night when Christ was born;
O night divine , O night, O night divine!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
O'er the world a star is sweetly gleaming,
Now come the wisemen from out of the Orient land.
The King of kings lay thus lowly manger;
In all our trials born to be our FRIEND.
He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger, (I needed those two lines today too)
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 he shall break, for the slave is our brother.
And in his name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
With all within us we praise His holy name.
Christ is the Lord! Then ever, 

ever praise we,
His power and glory ever more proclaim!
His power and glory ever more proclaim!
