I'm slowly learning how to play the penny whistle and I thought it would be fun to do a sort of advent of Christmas carols to give me something to work towards. Each day of December, up to Christmas day, I will post a video of myself playing a Christmas carol on the penny whistle.

Oh holy night!
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of the dear Savior's birth!
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till he appear'd and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!

   Fall on your knees
   Oh hear the angel voices
   Oh night divine
   Oh night when Christ was born
   Oh night divine
   Oh night divine

Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming
Here come the wise men from Orient land
The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger
In all our trials born to be our friend.

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.
