25 Days of Christmas Songs – Day 19

25 Days of Christmas Songs – Day 19

(If you’d like to read the other days, you can do so by clicking here. Don’t forget I’m making a playlist in Spotify as we go through this series, you can subscribe to here.)

Todays’s song, is special for a reason that is different than many of the others. The reason I think this is Christmas song unlike any other, is that it has at times worked its way into worship services all throughout the year. It’s no so popular anymore, but for a while, there were versions of the song that included different verses for the chorus. I know that sounds weird, so let me explain if you’re not familiar.

The chorus of the song is “O come let us adore Him, O come let us adore Him, O Come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.” There have been several other versions of the chorus that have been added. “For He alone is worthy,” “we’ll give Him all the glory” and others.

So, that’s what makes this a very special Christmas song. If you think about it, it’s hard to think of any other Christmas song that you might hear at any time during the year.

The music is said to have been written by John F. Wade, and the words are credited to monks although neither of those are known for sure.

For a little twist on the hymn, let me point you to a video that a great guy by the name of Dan Stevers made. If you’re still looking for a good video for Christmas church services, I’d recommend you check this one out. 

I’d also like to remind you of the free download I put up a few weeks ago, called Christmas Letters. It’s a set of videos and Graphics for Christmas services that are free for you to use!
