Christmas Hymn – O Come, Let Us Adore Him

Today, dear ones, I’m delighted to share with you a hymn that Becca chose for today. Tomorrow we’ll be dropping our Christmas special, so we’re excited about the holidays! Of course, I’ve been decided for Christmas so a few weeks now. I cheated and did not wait for the bird. Have you begun your tree, and what’s your favorite Christmas hymn?

O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant
Come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem; 
Come and behold Him, born the King of angels:

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 bright hosts of heav’n above; 
Glory to God, all glory in the highest

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 all glory giv’n:
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing

O come, let us adore Him, 
O come, let us adore Him, 
O come, let us adore Him, Christ, the Lord.

I mentioned previously, I think, that P&R Publishers is partnering with the Hub. They’ve got a tremendous amount of books to review or giveaway, and a long list of authors we could interview. So we’re asking you, dear friends, which ones you’d like to see more of. I hope you’re all having a blessed weekend filled with sweet fellowship. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

  1. Hi sister! That’s great that T&H has partnered with solid publisher, P&R. As you know, I have a very narrow focus. P&R published “Roman Catholicism” by Loraine Boettner in the early 1960s and it was one of the most popular resources on the RCC from an evangelical perspective for decades. I searched their website for current books on Catholicism and I see they have one on the theology of Karl Rahner (1904-1984) by Camden M. Bucey. I don’t know a lot about Rahner but I should. He was a liberal Jesuit theologian who helped steer the RCC towards modernism and ecumenism. Leonardo De Chirico endorses the book which tells me Bucey does not endorse Rahner’s theology but dissects it. I might have to purchase the Kindle version someday. I wish P&R had a 2019 equivalent of “Roman Catholicism,” but few Protestant publishers want to fight that battle these days.

    You know by now that I’m a curious nerd. I was wondering about the origins of “O Come All Ye Faithful” and did some googling. I found the Christmas carol is widely attributed to English Roman Catholic, John Francis Wade. But even more interesting is the claim that the lyrics were a cryptic ode to the Catholic pretender to the English throne, Charles Edward Stuart aka Bonnie Prince Charlie.

    Please know I’m not advocating that we need to boycott the carol, the lyrics at face value are beautiful and worshipful, but I know you also enjoy history and would be interested. Many popular songs and nursery rhymes of those politically/religiously restricted times had cryptic meanings.

    1. Thank you, brother, you know you can’t dangle a juicy historical carrot in front of me! I’m fascinated by the political meanings behind the lullabies we sing today! I’m going to have to check this story out, I love knowing where these songs come from. It says that it’s attributed to him, does that mean some question whether or not he wrote it?
