The 12 Days Of Christmas Songs (Day 9)

Christmas Songs for December 22, 2022


Regardless of when Jesus was actually born, it’s a good thing to celebrate the birth of Jesus!  Christmas is a great time to praise, worship and give honor to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ – the Savior of the world!

Pastor Dewey Moede and I agreed that sharing a mixture of modern and traditional Christmas songs is in order for this season!  So, from December 14, 2022 through Christmas Day, I’ll post articles with videos or audio-videos of some great and worshipful Christmas-themed songs.

For Day 9, here is the Atlanta Master Chorale performing Lo, How A Rose E’er Blooming (Praetorius).  This video was recorded in December of 2014 during a concert at the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts on the campus of Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia.

Isaiah 11:1-2 [NKJV]

“There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse,
And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him,
The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The Spirit of counsel and might,
The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.”

I hope you enjoy this beautiful recording of Lo, How A Rose E’er Blooming!

Here are the lyrics:

Lo, how a Rose e’er blooming
From tender stem hath sprung!
Of Jesse’s lineage coming,
As men of old have sung.
It came, a flow’ret bright,
Amid the cold of winter,
When half spent was the night.

Isaiah ’twas foretold it,
The Rose I have in mind;
With Mary we behold it,
The virgin mother kind.
To show God’s love aright,
She bore to men a Savior,
When half spent was the night.

This Flow’r, whose fragrance tender
With sweetness fills the air,
Dispels with glorious splendor
The darkness everywhere.
True man, yet very God,
From sin and death He saves us,
And lightens every load.

God bless you all! Hopefully you’ll come back to FGGAM’s website tomorrow and join me for some new Christmas music on Day 10.
