Chilling Rendition of ‘O Come, Emmanuel’

Updated Dec 12, 2023

One young man turned in an inspiring and moving rendition of a beloved Christmas song about the birth of Jesus Christ, “O Come, Emmanuel.”

The Bible makes it clear that several were anxiously and eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Son of God, a Savior to cleanse men’s hearts of sin. So, when that child finally arrived, born to a virgin in a Bethlehem stable, it was a joyous occasion and a time for celebration. Many even traveled great distances to get a glimpse of the Christ child, bringing with them gifts for the newborn King. 

In a video posted on YouTube, Simon Khorolskiy belts out the lyrics to “O Come, Emmanuel,” a tune that beautifully expresses the utter happiness and joy that followers of God likely felt on that most holy of nights. 

“O Come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear”

Simon does not change much, if anything, in the song. Classics are classics for a reason, right? Instead, he uses his God-given talent to bring glory and honor to His name by delivering an epic and masterful performance of the Christmas song that is near and dear to the hearts of many. 

Simon’s stunning “O Come, Emmanuel” performance is far from the only tune he’s sung. Those interested in hearing more from this immensely talented vocalist will discover dozens of other videos on his YouTube channel.

But regardless of whatever amount of fame and money that might come his way due to his incredible singing voice, Simon has one clearly stated objective and goal. He describes his music as being for “the glory of God and his son Jesus Christ.” Simon adds Jesus “gave his life for me, my songs are all for him.”

What a wonderful, stated approach and goal! Simon, with his music and voice, is looking to bring glory and honor to the one true King!

“And so the Word became flesh and took a place among us for a time; and we saw his glory – such glory as is given to an only son by his father – saw it to be true and full of grace” (John 1:14 ).
