Let us Adore Him

Prayer Improvisations Christmas“Adeste Fidelis” is the original Latin title of the Christmas hymn carol known as “O Come, All Ye Faithful.” For many years the writer and composer was unknown. According to Kenneth Osbeck, the hymn was first published in 1751 in the collection “Cantus Diversi” by John Francis Wade, who wrote and composed this Latin hymn carol in 1744. One hundred years after its publication, the carol was translated into English by Frederick Oakeley, an Anglican minister.

John 1:14 New International Version (NIV)
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

As I listen to the Prayerful Improvisation of this beloved Christmas carol performed by Peter Vantine, I reflect on John 1:14 and then think of the third verse of this carol. I invite you to do the same and perhaps realize that the phrase “O come, let us adore Him Christ the Lord!” is an invitation for all of us to do likewise.

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning
Jesus, to Thee be glory given
Word of the Father
Now in flesh appearing
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
Christ the Lord!
