All right, Joshua, you talked me into it… This is my favorite rendition of We Three Kings, sung with gusto by actors Hugh Jackman, David Hobson, and Peter Cousen. I think this was originally part of an Australian TV Christmas special. My eyes tear up when I hear it–but those are tears of joy. What hath God wrought!
From Australian TV, a few years ago–Hugh Jackman, David Hobson, and Peter Cousen performing We Three Kings: and if this doesn’t pump you up for Christmas, I don’t know what will.
Hey! One thing we absolutely don’t have to worry about is running out of great Christmas music. And yet our first Christmas Carol Contest has slowed way down after just a week or so. The leading carol is still on top with just 25 views.
So many of you have never requested a hymn–so why not break the ice now?
How to win: If, say, on Dec. 14 you requested Gesu Bambino and it got 32 views that day, and no other hymn got that many on any other day, then you’d be the winner.
The prize is an autographed copy of one of my books. If you’ve already got them all, you can hold out for No. 11, The Temptation, which is just about ready to be published.
But we all win if we proclaim the birth of Jesus Christ Our Lord, and help this Christmas season draw the human heart to Him.
“Thewhiterabbit” has reminded us that today is Epiphany, the 12th Day of Christmas: and what could be more suitable to the occasion than We Three Kings?
Actually, the Bible (in Matthew Chapter 2) never calls them kings, but only “wise men from the East.” Then again, they bring gifts fit for a king, and not easily obtainable on a wise man’s salary–gold and frankincense, and myrrh. So maybe the tradition’s not far off the mark.
I love this rendition of the carol by Hugh Jackman, David Hodson, and Peter Cousen, from a Christmas special on Australian TV. They put their hearts into it, and it’s heartening to know that some of our entertainers, at least, love to praise the Lord Our God.
Our friend from Australia, “Optimal Play,” found this one for us: what a rousing rendition of We Three Kings! I don’t know if you have access to the comments, when I post a youtube video; but these guys sing it like they mean it… because they really mean it. Thanks, OP!
