00204 - Oh come let us adore Him

Updated: Mar 10, 2023

This, the first line of the chorus from ‘O Come, All Ye Faithful’, was written in 1744. There are five separate sources claiming they wrote it. The most likely is a Cistercian monk. Four verses originally written in Latin, hence its original title ‘Adeste Fideles’. It was added to by a French Catholic priest and now has eight full verses (one rarely sung).

When we come to Jesus, Joyful and Triumphant, we exalt Him, we submit to His name and majesty and we commit ourselves to adore Him. Philippians 4:4 says ‘Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice!’ (NLT)

On this Christmas day, of course have a great time with family and friends, try and get to Church if you can, but more than anything else, remember to be in thought and prayer, acknowledging that Jesus’ birth changed the course of history - forever.


On this Christmas day, we remember a baby that changed the world.


Lord, thank you for your life, your majesty, and for accepting me into your Kingdom, Praise you Lord, Amen.
