This is one of my favourite CHRISTmass carols.
This is my rendition of a traditional hymn from Canada. In fact, it is Canada's oldest carol.
It was written back in 1643 by a Jesuit priest named Jean De Brébeuf. He lived among the Huron/Wendat people, whom he was trying to convert to Christianity. He originally wrote this song in their language. It's original title was "Jesous Ahatonhia."
The English lyrics were written in 1926 by Jesse Edger Middleton.
Through the lyrics, Mr. Middleton tried to combine the familiar Nativity story of Jesus' birth with Native American Concepts.
It is still sung in Canadian churches from all denominations to this day.
