A beautiful French poem converted by composer Adolphe Adam in 1847 became the well-known Christmas carol beloved today known as “O Holy Night.” This Christmas carol has been shared in many different languages, not just the French original and the two familiar English versions.
The touching tribute to Jesus’ birth and humanity’s redemption is commonly performed during church Christmas programs, holiday church services and other seasonal events. Placide Cappeau originally penned the French Christmas poem as a celebration to a church organ renovation.
Renowned singer Josh Groban performed his version of “O Holy Night” that is simply breathtaking. Josh’s rendition is set to incredible scenes from the movie The Nativity Story. When the Three Wise Men look up to the shining star that was leading them to the newborn babe in Bethlehem, “O Holy Night” begins.
The flawless singing voice of Josh Groban brings us to a period in Biblical history that changed the world forever. The timing of the film is perfect as baby Jesus is born, the famous words are heard, “It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth.”
There was no room for Mary and Joseph at the inn, so they lay baby Jesus in a manger and it’s a beautiful sight for all to see. The animals marveled, the shepherds in the pasture hurried to see the babe and everyone rejoiced.
