Throughout the centuries there have been many people who loved Jesus and celebrated His birth each Christmas!
One way they have celebrated Christmas has been with Christmas carols.
Ihr Kinderlein, kommet, o kommet doch all...
“Ye little children, come, yes, come all...” 1
"Angels we have heard on high!" 2
“Silent night…” 3
1 Ihr Kinderlein, Kommet (Come Ye, Little Children), 1790
2 Angels We Have Heard on High, 1862
3 Silent Night, 1818
Ping’an ye, sheng shan ye...
“Silent night, holy night…”
"O, come, all ye faithful!" 4
4 O, Come, All Ye Faithful, 1751
When you are singing some of these older Christmas carols, think of the many Christians around the world who have been singing these same songs for two or three hundred years.
Join with them as you celebrate the birth of Jesus with Christmas carols this Christmas season!
