O Holy Night

Series: Christmas Carols

Category: Faith, Hope

Speaker: Rick Bayer

Tags: despair, faith, hope, weariness

The songwriter in “O Holy Night” wrote “the weary world rejoices”. Weariness is often an emotion we feel at Christmas with its responsibilities and commitments. But the songwriter continues with “breaks a new and glorious morn”. The prophet Jeremiah echoes a similar refrain of despair and hope in Lamentations 3.
