O Come, All Ye Bloggers

Are you ready for some Christmas carols?  Today it’s time for the esteemed tradition of Christmas blog caroling!  This great tradition was begun by footnoteMaven and continues this year as genealogy bloggers everywhere “sing” their favorite carols.  And the very best part is – you don’t have to hear us sing (trust me, if you’ve never heard  me sing, it really is a good thing). 

My carol for this year is a classic: O Come All Ye Faithful

Oh come all ye faithful,joyful and triumphant,
Oh come ye, oh come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold him, born the king of angels,
  Oh come let us adore him, oh come let us adore him
  Oh come let us adore him, Christ the lord.

Sing, choirs of angels, sing with exultations,
Sing all ye citizens of heav’n above.
Glory to God, in the highest
  Oh come let us adore him, oh come let us adore him
  Oh come let us adore him, Christ the lord.

Yea, Lord we greet thee, born this happy morning,
Jesus, to thee be glory giv’n
Word of the father, now In flesh appearing
  Oh come let us adore him, oh come let us adore him
  Oh come let us adore him, Christ the lord.

My favorite part is when the song is sung in Latin:  Adeste fideles, laete triumphantes, Venite, venite in Bethlehem. Natum videte, Regem anglelorum.  Venite adoremus, venite adoremus,  venite adoremus, Dominum.

Blog-Caroling of Years Past:

  1. I really loved this song too, until my brothers ruined it for me by substituting their own words. They are not passing Go, they are going directly to Hell. Remind me to tell you the words in the “off” season LOL Merry Christmas Sista Donner – I am counting the days until June and our visit to the Most Reverend of all Mothas – Sista Mary Martha

  2. In our parish, before midnight liturgy begins, we sing traditional Christmas carols – both Eastern European ones and the ones we all grew up with. Then, when the choir starts “Oh, Come, All Ye Faithful/Adeste Fideles/Pridite, pridite” we know it’s time to stand and for liturgy to begin. Every year, it’s one of those spine-tingling moments.

  3. Donna,

    Thank you for reminding me of that lovely Christmas carol. My family so disliked singing that one year I bought kazoos to use instead.

    Wishing you wonderful holidays and leaving a small Christmas Box:

    “Again at Christmas did we weave
    The holly round the Christmas hearth;
    The silent snow possessed the earth,
    And calmy fell our Christmas Eve.”

    “The yule-log sparked keen with frost
    No wing of wind the region swept
    But over all things brooding slept
    The quiet sense of something lost.”
    [Alfred Lord Tennyson]
