Then Sings My Soul Saturday ~ Celtic Woman


It's another Then Sings My Soul Saturday when I link up with Amy of Signs, Miracles and Wonders. Since this is the Christmas season, I'm posting a favorite song of mine; Away in a Manger.

I first heard this particular version on Kim's blog called Everyday Adventures in Faith. If you've not visited her, you must take the time. She and her husband and their five children are Americans living in Hong Kong for several years. I enjoy reading about their adventures. Kim spoke of the UK version of Away in a Manger that they enjoyed at the international school.

Here is Celtic Woman singing Away in a Manger. I hope you enjoy it.

Have a wonderful Saturday and thank you for visiting Heart Choices.

Merry Christmas!

  2. I loved that version too - the children and I listened to it a few times because they are singing this song at church tomorrow for our voice instructor. Lexi is singing a solo too! Praying I find my video recorder to film it :-) Its been missing for weeks :(

    Love you!

  3. Love this group! PBS often airs their specials, and I am carried away and captivated.

    The song, Away in a Manger, always chokes me up (if even Barney were to sing it). There's something so mysterious & powerful about Immanuel coming as an infant that tears seem the natural response.

    God With Us. Incredible!

  6. Debbie, this version is absolutely beautiful...these women have been given a gift that keeps on blessing us, and the lyrics of this song are one of the most beautiful. I so appreciate that we can still find some wonderful programs on television during the Christmas season...we've recorded the Celtic Women's special, and turn it on for anyone that comes through our door!

    Have a beautiful week-end, my friend! God bless!

  8. A beautiful song, also performed by our Sissel. But the clean voice with the Celtic vibrato in it, cannot be sung by others, than those born and raised on the Emerald Isle.

    I love the simplicity of the text.
    The wonder that the King of Kings was born in a stable.
    It's a wonder that the rich and mighty still don't know where to look for our savior.
    We are a bunch of slow learners.
    1 Chor. 1:26Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29so that no one may boast before him. 30It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord
    Amen.
    From Felisol

    PS We are not worried about the lights seen in the North of Norway. I think the Americans were more scared. We are worried about the old nuclear powerr plants in Russia, like the one in Tsjernobile, or the float of old nuclear armed submarines stationed near Finmark.
    These things have scared us for decades. Even here in the South we learned the meaning of counting bequerels and not being allowed to let our children play outdoors or eat meat from cattle that had stayed the summer in the mountains, like Norwegian cattle do.
    We don't fear any Russian arrack, but old Russian military and civil nuclear reactors.

    Who siad, fear nothing, but fear itself??
    Jesus told us; Fear not.
    We will put our trust in him.

  13. This is so cool--I had just watched that video tonight while browsing Youtube. I like Celtic Women very much. It amazes me how that soprano sings (not the one in this video, the blonde one).

  14. Angelic sounding! Keith & Kristyn Getty are in concert at our church this weekend (In Christ Alone) & it reminds me of their neat sound. When Kristyn Getty read scripture w/ her beautiful accent it was powerful b/c of her heart & the beautiful sound of her voice.
