my favorite carol

My favorite Christmas carol is “O Holy Night.”  I hear it a lot this time of year, but sadly a lot of versions don’t include the third verse, which is my favorite:

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.

Here’s a link where you can hear Sufjan Stevens’ version (which is my new favorite):
