Musical Advent: December 1st Oh, Come, Oh Come, Emmanuel

There are many advent ideas…candy, activities, nativity set-ups, gratitude, acts of service…I love music….hymns speak to me..reading the text of the hymns….hearing the instrumentals…singing ties my mind and heart together…

My idea is simple one hymn per day..twenty-five hymns…and since I do not play the piano or read music well they old hymnal have is not much help beyond the few tunes I have memorized… 

enter YouTube!  like I mentioned I have a hymnal so I do not need the words..but I will try to find videos that have words for your benefit :)


As my family sings our way through this month of Christmas preparations we invite you to join us….

Today, we begin with an advent hymn…




  1. […] you get past the most familiar Advent….Oh, wait who am I kidding…most of us only know Oh, Come, Oh, Come Emmanuel ..but I did find another  truly Advent Hymn for our devotional time […]
