Rightly Dividing Christmas IV

Note from Pastor Mike:
Let’s look at the original “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” and do a Bible study of each verse to see if this is something that we should be singing. We can put truths into our own words, as did Wesley here, but we also must make sure what we are singing is still truthful.

For those of you that are new to ‘meter’ and syllable writing of the old hymns, you may find this interesting. You can see how they put the emphasis on words, not music and how we put the emphasis on music and not words today.

Also, this is the only time in history, past, present or future that you will hear me sing ‘solo’ as we do some singing for example in this sermon. My apologies. :-) Following along with the notes is important to understand what we are doing in the sermon, too.

PS – we are having sound and video issues again, so the recording is from my pocket digital – thus the quality of sound not what it should be.
