Sunday Singalong with Circlemending - Songs of the Season - The Birth of our Savior

It is the last Sunday of Advent. This coming Friday night is Christmas eve, when we celebrate the birth of our Savior. There are so many songs, hymns, and carols that celebrate that event. Surely you have many favorites, so share one here.

One of my favorites is "Infant Holy" - it's a simple song and I love the version on the recording "Twas on a Night Like This" (discussed a couple of weeks ago. But here is a YouTube version with a lovely background video, the song performed by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Enjoy the experience.

So now it's your turn: Share the lyrics, title, or link to a favorite song that speaks to the birth of our Savior, the reason we celebrate this time of year. Let us not forget the Reason for the Season.

Merry Christmas to all my followers, and to anyone who just stumbles on this post.

    Merry Christmas!

    "O Holy Night" (1847)

    A gorgeous song performed by so many amazing artists; Josh Groban this time around - simply incredible!


    All my best,

  2. Oh yes, I love both of those, and don't forget one of my children's favorites, Away in a Manager!

  3. Hi
    I'm a new genealogy blogger at Family Archaeologist. I loved to sing in the choir as a kid & in High School, and every year go wherever I can to sing Christmas songs. O Holy Night was a favorite of my dad's and we sang it often. I just made a post about how my grandparents knew hundreds of songs and we've relegated singing to so-called "professionals." You may enjoy it at -- the post is "The Cash and Song Book" Plus my grandfather's diary of his trip to America 100 years ago will be posted on the centennial of its writing. Hope you drop by.
