Thanksgiving tracklistings and reading

They say every blogpost tries to get you to buy something or click something. Here is one that doesnt. But it does ask you why we celebrate.  This page is easy to print and write chords, tabs, or notes on.

Thanksgiving is upon us, and how similarly we celebrate this festive season the world over is clear in the dhaks of the Bengali pujas, the turkey and the pumpkin patch, the lights of diwali, the carolers with their guitars slung over their shoulders and hoods up, the anniversary fervor of the gakkai members, the widely accepted birth of christ, the year end, and the new year crackers.

O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of Our dear Saviour's birth.
Long lay the world In sin and error pining,
'Til He appear'd And the soul felt its worth.

A thrill of hope The weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks A new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! O, hear the angels' voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born;
O night divine, O night, O night Divine.

Of course it sounds entirely different when you hear Celine Dion , Jackie Evancho, Josh Groban, Pavarotti, or Bocello or even Michael McManus. Which is your favorite? The one from Glee? Leave a comment, and then read on for the rest of the Cantique de Noel.

For those of you more fond of listening, but totally not this song, google celine dione i drove all night acapella video! Link from youtube below.  Don't buy it, let it remain rare.

Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts By His cradle we stand.
So led by light of A star sweetly gleaming,
Here come the wise men From Orient land.

The King of Kings Lay thus in lowly manger;
In all our trials Born to be our friend.
He knows our need, To our weakness is no stranger,
Behold your King! Before Him lowly bend!
Behold your King, Before Him lowly bend!

Truly He taught us To love one another;
His law is love And His gospel is peace.
Chains shall He break For the slave is our brother;
And in His name All oppression shall cease.

Sweet hymns of joy In grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us Praise His holy name.
Christ is the Lord! O praise His Name forever,
His power and glory Evermore proclaim.
His power and glory Evermore proclaim.
