The Greatest Gift of All [Christmas Eve]

December 24, 2022

"The Greatest Gift of All"

What is your favorite Christmas song? Now, before you answer, I will not accept secular songs. No "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire." No "Grandma got run over by a reindeer." And definitely no "Santa Baby." I know, I know there are some secular songs that aren't cheesy. But, obviously, tonight, I will only accept Christian songs.

What is your favorite Christmas song…?

One of my favorites is "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel." I love this song. It was written about one thousand years ago. Here's verse three:

O come, thou Dayspring, come and cheer our spirits by thine advent here; and drive away the shades of night, and pierce the clouds and bring us light!

Rejoice! rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel!
