O Holy Night

from The Farmer's Rain by endeavor



Wrote this as a result of a jam session with the ladies, where the idea spawned. Then worked on it for a week or so so that it could be performed at church for the Christmas Program. For that performance, Cullin Kress and I played guitar, Melody, Becky, Lynn, and Sue sang. I’m pretty sure it was a hit.

TH-Taylor T5 through pedal board with light compression. I like the sound of this recording a LOT. It is so present. TH-Baden playing harmony acoustic, NH-drums, TH-lead vocal (doubled), MH-backup vocal (doubled), JG-Epiphone bass using cabinet emulation, CK-lead with his guitar and old amp. I originally thought we would add additional backup vocals since we performed it that way at church, but once the lead and Melody’s vocal was done, I felt the song was finished.


Verse 1
O Holy Night! (O Holy Night!), O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining
It is the night (it is the night), It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth

Chorus 1
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth, O Holy Night!

Verse 1
A thrill of hope (a thrill of hope), a thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks (for yonder breaks), for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn

Chorus 2
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born, O Holy Night!

O Holy Night! O Holy Night! O Holy Night! O night divine

Chorus 3
His law is love and His gospel is peace
And in his name all oppression shall cease, O Holy Night!

O Holy Night! O Holy Night! O Holy Night! O night divine
