Noel

James Grayston

Noel – but not what you’re expecting!

If you looking to hear the traditional Carol Noel you might be a bit disappointed. I would ask that you give this a listen though. It is a fantastic modern carol bringing us the true message of Christmas.

The word Noel has it’s origin in latin meaning Birth. Hence the expression being used at Christmas.  It’s vital that we understand that Christmas is more than just a birth and a new baby. God was entering the world in a miraculous way but he came for a purpose and that purpose was the cross on which Jesus died 33 years or so later.

I’ve copied the words of the song in the video –

Love incarnate, love divine
Star and angels gave the sign
Bow to babe on bended knee
The Savior of humanity
Unto us a Child is born
He shall reign forevermore

Noel, Noel
Come and see what God has done
Noel, Noel
The story of amazing love!
The light of the world, given for us
Noel

Son of God and Son of man
There before the world began
Born to suffer, born to save
Born to raise us from the grave
Christ the everlasting Lord
He shall reign forevermore

Noel, Noel
Come and see what God has done
Noel, Noel
The story of amazing love!
The light of the world, given for us
Noel

If we think about Christmas and it’s only impact in my life is what took place in the manger we are missing God’s message for this world. Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.  This song reminds us not only of His birth but also His death, burial & resurrection.
