I mentioned how I remembered always Pat Boone singing this (On TV I think) but I haven’t heard it for over 40 years. Here is a good remastered version though I wish they did something with a slide show for that (Maybe I will try that for a Christmas project next year) He sings so effortlessly and his notes flow as smoothly as butter. I always wished I could sound like that but we each have our own gifts. Blessings and Merry Christmas!
In 1855 when this hymn was first written in France my great-great grandfather (a rare French protestant) was making his way from Alsace-Lorraine to Patterson, New Jersey. I still have in my upper drawer a very old and undated French Bible handed down from the family. It has always been amazing to me how Hymns (and the Christmas ones we call Carols in particular) have preserved the inheritance of faith from all around the world. I always love playing this carol for our youth to sing in our Christmas program. It is a great opening number as it gets people tapping their feet and almost everyone joins in on the chorus. As I have often said, “The best song to sing is the one they will sing with you!” May you be blessed as you begin to turn your heart, schedule mind and pocketbook towards Christmas!
Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. Matthew 2:1-2
Here is some Christmas music, some old, some new to listen to if you wish this night and tomorrow. God bless and Merry Christmas to everyone!
I have always loved her voice. Take a moment today to pause and listen again and you will be blessed!
My very favorite version of this Carol and in my opinion the very best of Annie Moses. Be bless as you listen!
Not quite sure why they chose this as instrumental only (They have amazing voices) But this is great for a quiet reflective moment to pause and consider the Christ Child!
