O Holy Night

Every once in a while, I hear song lyrics out of their rote context and understand them for what they really are. This verse of “O Holy Night” struck me several times this Christmas season – on the radio when they started playing Christmas music WAY too early, at church last Sunday, and again at my family’s church tonight. Hope wherever you are you’re having a lovely holiday, and you’re as blessed by these words as I am.

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 our hearts 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!
