Rob Morgan's unmistakable talent for storytelling continues as he reacquaints people with the Christmas hymns that are so true to the tradition of Christmas. In Come Let Us Adore Him, Rob shares his historical findings about these great hymns, their writers and composers, and other nuggets that engage readers more deeply in the beloved music of the Christmas season. The book also will feature a 10-song CD collection of instrumental Christmas hymns.

From heaven above to Earth I come
We sing, Emmanuel, thy praise
While shepherds watched their flocks
Joy to the world!
Hark! The herald angels sing
Hallelujah chorus (from The Messiah)
O come, all ye faithful
Come, thou long-expected Jesus
Angels, from the realms of glory
Silent night
The first noel
O holy night
Once in royal David's city
It came upon a midnight clear
O come, o come Emmanuel
Good King Wenceslas
Now praise we Christ the holy one
Of the father's love begotten
We three kings of Orient are
Come, thou redeemer of the Earth
Angels we have heard on high
Thou didst leave thy throne
I heard the bells on Christmas day
What child is this?
Who is he in yonder stall?
O little town of Bethlehem
There's a song in the air
Away in a manger
Go, tell it on the mountain
Jesus Christ is born today! Accompanying CD: O come, all ye faithful
O holy night
Angels we have heard on high
Away in a manger
The first noel medley
What child is this?
Hark! the herald angels sing
God rest ye, merry gentlemen
O come, o come Immanuel
Silent night.
