O Holy Night by Adolphe Charles Adam


A Christmas carol by Adolphe Charles Adam. We played our own arrangement and rendition of this beautiful tune, as an instrumental piece. Part of the famous Nativity scene is described in Matthew 2:9-11. "After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh."

Christians celebrate the birth of Christ on Christmas Day (although it probably isn't the actual date), and His birth day was indeed a most holy night. The angel declared His birth to shepherds (Luke 2:10-11) and a great host gave glory to God (Luke 2:13-14). The magi were led by a star to where He lay. And it was in the manger that they worshiped the King of kings. We also celebrate Christmas because His birth too signified that there was a plan for redemption for all mankind, through His eventual death on the cross for the sins of the world. Behold your King, before Him lowly bend. We worship you Lord!
