O Holy Night: You Can Bet I’ll Rejoice

Let me start this with a precursor:

I am writing this post based on the feelings that I get from the song O Holy Night. A lot of time I am at a loss for words when something touches me so profoundly, such as this song. It’s like I can feel the words in my bones.

I’ve been listening to Christmas songs all day because they make me happy. Haha. Really. And my favorite one happens to be “O Holy Night”. Now, I am not religious. I’ve tried church when I was small but it was never really my thing. However, I do still have morals, values, and beliefs that are just as righteous as the next person.

I have made my share of regretful mistakes and choices and live a life that may seem especially unfair (I’m not missing a leg or anything serious like that, but I don’t need to and won’t go into detail on this). But I  still believe in hope, faith, and love, yet know that sometimes those virtues are hard to come by in the world. I believe in second chances. I believe that people DO make mistakes, that they DO have their faults, and that they are not perfect. I can only have hope that one day, everything will be… Right.

“O Holy night, the stars are brightly shining. It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth.

Long lay the world in sin and error pining. Til He appeared and the soul felt it’s worth.

The thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices, for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn. Fall on your knees. Hear the angel voices. O night divine…”

I believe that we all make mistakes and live hard lives, some of us more than others, and we can only “have hope” that when we awake the next day, that “yonder will break a new and glorious morn”. We can only hope that one day our “soul will finally feel it’s worth”.

Every so often, though it may be rarely, I am infused with the thrill of hope. I hope that one day, my “Savior” will finally come. Will finally release me from the torment, the “sin and error pining”. That my weary soul will finally be at ease. That my new and glorious morn will come.

You can bet I’ll fall to my knees and rejoice.
