O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.

I suppose I’ll be the first to start this season’s music off with my all-time favorite Christmas song. This is a beautiful rendition by Christina Sonnemann.

O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

O come, Thou Key of David, come
And open wide our heavenly home
Make safe the way that leads on high
And close the path to misery
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

    Sorry to say, but you have the Harlot of Rome to thank for this song as well as some of the other famous religious x-mass songs either written by or introduced to the world by Catholics including for example Silent Night, Angels We Have Heard on High, and O Holy Night (written by a French composer by request of a Catholic priest). Another beautiful song I cannot deny to the ears, It Came Upon A Midnight Clear, was written by a Uniterian. There’s is a lot more about so many of these songs including a lot of unscriptural teachings like for example We Three Kings – a very Catholic tradition where the Bible calls them Wise Men and gives no number.

    On the secular front, will find many of the most famous songs were written by unbelieving Jews.

    I do enjoy listening to this song. It is so beautiful. My favorite though has to be “O Come All Ye Faithful”. It always brings tears to my eyes.
