There are so many wonderful Christmas Carols that it is a challenge to say which one would be my favorite.
"Silent Night", "The First Noel" ," Away in a Manger" are all well loved. One though that seems to be especially uplifting is "Joy To The World". It was written by a London pastor Isaac Watts. I just recently read though that Mr. Watts did not have the birth of Christ in mind when he wrote this hymn. He based the words on his interpretation of Psalm 98 which does not refer to the Lord's birth.
How it became a Christmas carol remains a mystery. I am sure though that it is a great favorite of many during this beautiful season of the year. It is one of mine. Hope you enjoy this lovely song performed by Celtic Women.
"Shout for joy to the Lord all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music, make music to the Lord with the harp, with the harp and sound of singing." Psalm 98:4-5 (NIV)
Have a joyful week.
