At our house, we are focusing more on celebrating Advent this year than in years past. We've been spending time singing the sweet carols that I so wish we sang year-round! I'm loving the words of "O Holy Night" so much right now. The simple truth and weight of Christmas, put so beautifully in just a few lines of this old hymn! In sin and error we were pining, until He came, and the soul felt its worth. Thank you, precious Jesus. You are my thrill of hope!

My absolute favorite Christmas song! I was just looking at my Spotify Christmas playlist the other day and realized I had at least 5 versions on there. Something about this song always brings me back to what the season really is about.

Nice! My favorite Christmas song is O Come O Come Emmanuel - I love the reminder of our ransom and redemption. :) My husband and I were just talking about how we didn't get organized in time to do something hands on to teach the kids about Advent and how we want to plan that for next year; singing meaningful carols is a great no-planning-required idea for this year!

Yes those words are truth!

I also love "Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus." Not one we hear enough.

I would love this as a free or paid printable! So simple. Great truths and such a lovely reminder that they're not just lyrics but there is a weight of glory to those words. Thanks for sharing. :)
