A Christmas Treat: John Berry Sings O Holy Night (Video)

I first heard John Berry sing this on Great American Country, a show hosted by Gary Chapman in the 90’s.

I was absolutely amazed at John’s beautiful tenor, perfectly matched for this marvelous Christmas hymn.

Watch and enjoy this Christmas Eve as we remember the reason for the season — God’s wondrous plan of reconciliation, long foretold in the Old Testament, began in that lowly manger.

Christmas is just part one. The plan will not be completed for 33 years as Jesus was crucified on a Friday, resurrected on a Sunday.

Christmas Eve gives up hope of redemption, bringing light to a dark, dark world, pining in sin.

But that baby King child, born to die, ushered in light.

O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Saviour’s birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
O night divine, the night when Christ was born;
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
O’er the world a star is sweetly gleaming,
Now come the wisemen from out of the Orient land.

The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger;
In all our trials born to be our friend.
He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger,
Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!
Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!

Truly He taught us to love one another,
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother.
And in his name all oppression shall cease.

Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
With all our hearts we praise His holy name.
Christ is the Lord! Then ever, ever praise we,
His power and glory evermore proclaim!
His power and glory evermore proclaim!
