Goodbye For Now

Saturday, January 22, 2011 3:00 AM Comments (12)

Though I have thoroughly enjoyed my time blogging and interacting with readers here at NCRegister.com, the time has come for me to focus on other projects. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to write here and I want to thank everyone for reading and commenting during the past year.

I won’t be going far. I will be spending much of my time at Faith & Family, and I hope you’ll visit me there. Oh, and I’ll be here too—reading, commenting, and keeping those other crazy bloggers (I’m watching you! You know who you are!) on their toes.

It’s been a blessing to be here. I wish EWTN and NCRegister every success in the adventure that lies ahead.

Joy to the World

12 Days of Christmas Songs -- Day 11

Tuesday, January 04, 2011 10:00 AM Comments (0)

by Chris Tomlin:

Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the world, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found,
Far as the curse is found,
Far as, far as, the curse is found.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His...READ MORE

O Holy Night

12 Days of Christmas Songs -- Day 10

Monday, January 03, 2011 10:00 AM Comments (3)

by Martina McBride (a capella):

O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Saviour’s birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
O night divine, the night when Christ was born;
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
O’er the world a star is sweetly gleaming,
Now come the wisemen from out of the Orient land.
The King of kings lay thus...READ MORE

by Rebecca St. James:

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;
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

O Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation,
Sing all that hear in heaven God’s holy word.
Give to our Father glory in the Highest;
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

All Hail! Lord, we greet Thee,
Born this happy morning,
O Jesus! for evermore be Thy name adored.
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,...READ MORE

Away In a Manger

12 Days of Christmas Songs -- Day 8

Saturday, January 01, 2011 10:00 AM Comments (0)

by Casting Crowns:

Away in a manger,
No crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head

The stars in the bright sky
Looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay

The cattle are lowing
The poor Baby wakes
But little Lord Jesus
No crying He makes

I love Thee, Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my side,
‘Til morning is nigh.

Be near me, Lord Jesus,
I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever
And love me I pray

Bless all the dear children
In Thy tender care
And take us to heaven
To live with Thee there

Silent Night

12 Days of Christmas Songs -- Day 7

Friday, December 31, 2010 10:00 AM Comments (6)

by Sinead O’Connor

Surprisingly, from an anti-Catholic singer comes this is a hauntingly beautiful version.

Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ, the Saviour is born
Christ, the Saviour is born

Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

Comfort and Joy

12 Days of Christmas Songs -- Day 6

by Simon and Garfunkel

God rest ye merry, gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember, Christ, our Saviour
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan’s power
When we were gone astray
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

In Bethlehem, in Israel,
This blessed Babe was born
And laid within a manger
Upon this blessed morn
The which His Mother Mary
Did nothing take in scorn
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

From God our Heavenly Father
A blessed Angel came;
And unto certain Shepherds
Brought tidings of the same:
How that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by Name.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and...READ MORE

Who Comes This Night?

12 Days of Christmas Songs -- Day 5

Wednesday, December 29, 2010 10:00 AM Comments (1)

by James Taylor

Who comes this night, this wintry night,
As to the lowly manger?
The Shepards and the Kings did come
To welcome in the stranger.
Who sends this song upon the air,
To ease the soul that’s aching?
To still the cry of deep despair
And heal the heart that’s breaking.

Brother Joseph bring the light
Fast, the night is fading.
And who will come this wintry night
To where the stranger’s waiting?

Who comes this night, with humble heart,
To give the fullest measure
A gift of purest love to bring
What good and worthy treasure.

Brother Joseph bring the lamb
For they are asking for him.
The children come this starry night
To lay their hearts before him.

For those who would the...READ MORE
