Noël (or Noel) finds its source from the Latin verb nasci, meaning “to be born.” but the word itself comes from the Old French, literally “of or born on Christmas” (online etymology). In the Middle Ages it was a cry of celebration…Noel! Christ is born!

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; 11 for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.  (Luke 2:10-11 NASB)

The music video is a passionate revision of the familiar carol by the same title, written by Chris Tomlin and sung by Lauren Daigle. Here’s the chorus:

Noel, Noel
Come and see what God has done
Noel, Noel
The story of amazing love!
The light of the world, given for us

Amen. May you and yours have a very merry celebration of Noël!

  1. Though I am not a Christian in the least, I still have an eye and ear for powerful, moving fine art and performances. I am a huge music fan! My all-time favorite holiday carol is far and away “O Holy Night.” There are a few renditions that make the hair on the back of my neck stand up and goose-bumps rise on my arms! LOL But nothing has ever come close (for me, of course) than Jon Anderson’s — lead singer for one of my favorite rock bands of the 70’s & 80’s — version off the album 3-Ships. Try to get pass the cheesy keyboard intro until Anderson gets to those incredibly stirring, RAW notes of emotion and intensity. Oh man, talk about WOW-FACTORS!!! 😮

    So… with no further adou and if I may Mel:
