One of the neat things about becoming a born-again Christian–besides the whole salvation thing–is that the lyrics of Christmas hymns mean a lot more to me now. For example, how about this one from “Oh Holy Night”:
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.
I think that third line is really neat, since it ties in with my fascination with Job 28: 28. More generally, Jesus is the Light of the World–He had to come show us how to live, because we were quite simply lost without Him.
