December Daily: O Come All Ye Faithful

One of my favorite Christmas carols is O Come All Ye Faithful. I was in a situation the other morning with time on my hands and nothing to do, so I began to sing this song and really think about the words. How often do we sing songs without thinking about what we're singing? These verses were a blessing to me and began to prepare my heart for Christmas!

O come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold him,
Born the King of angels;

[Chorus]
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O Come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.

Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above;
Glory to God
All glory in the highest;

[Chorus]
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O Come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.

See how the shepherds,
Summoned to his cradle,
Leaving their flocks, draw nigh to gaze;
We too will thither
Bend our joyful footsteps;

[Chorus]
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O Come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.

Yea, Lord, we greet thee,
Born this happy morning;
Jesus, to thee be glory given;
Word of the Father,
Now in flesh appearing.

[Chorus]
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O Come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.
