7 Different Versions of Holiday Hymn 'O Come All Ye Faithful

Updated on July 12, 2017

O Come All Ye Faithful is a very popular hymn that is sung by many churches, famous musical artists, Gospel singers and Christian contemporary artist all over the world. It is not only sung at Christmas time, but some churches sing the chorus to this song, O Come Let us Adore Him all throughout the year. So, Who wrote this hymn? Here is a little history. According to the Christian Broadcasting Network, there have been recent research that revealed there are manuscripts which indicated that it was written in 1744 by an English layman named John Wade. As part of his collection, the hymn first appeared as 'Cantus Diversi' which was published in England in 1751. One hundred years later, an Anglican minister, Frederick Oakeley translated the carol into English form to be used for church congregations.

For this Christmas Holiday, take time to enjoy Christmas carols as well as new holiday songs to remember this great season. I love Christmas hymns, carols and also new inspirational Christmas songs written by music artists based on the true stories of many people. But I also look out to see hymns and carols formed in a different version that no one may expect. Here are some different versions of 'O Come All Ye Faithful O Come let us Adore Him.'
