Andrea Bocelli - Adeste Fideles




O come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye, to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him,
Born the King of angels;

Chorus:


O come, let us adore Him,

O come, let us adore Him,

O come, let us adore Him,

Christ the Lord.


God of God,
Light of Light,
Lo, He abhors not the Virgin’s womb;
Very God,
Begotten not created;

(chorus)

See how the shepherds,
Summoned to His cradle,
Leaving their flocks, draw nigh to gaze;
We too will thither
Bend our joyful footsteps;

(chorus)

Lo! star-led chieftains,
Magi, Christ adoring,
Offer Him incense, gold, and myrrh;
We to the Christ Child
Bring our hearts’ oblations.

(chorus)

Child, for us sinners
Poor and in the manger,
We would embrace Thee, with love and awe;
Who would not love Thee,
Loving us so dearly?

(chorus)

There shall we see Him,
His Eternal Father's
Everlasting Brightness now veiled under flesh;
We find there,
A Babe in infant clothing;

(chorus)

Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation;
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!
Glory to God
In the highest;

(chorus)

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee,
Born this happy morning;
Jesus, to Thee be glory given;
Word of the Father,
Now in flesh appearing.

The sound of praise comes from all creatures but the children of Adam have the talent to surpass all of creation in such praise. The problem is how to maintain that spirit in the heart and translate it to our everyday life.
