Russian Singer Performs Brilliant Cover Of ‘O Come, Emmanuel’

‘O come, O come, Emmanuel’ is the song’s first line. It gives us a sneak peek that it’s about Jesus’ selfless sacrifice for us.


Simon Khorolskiy is a singer from Washington state. His Russian family came to the U.S. when he was two years old. His mission is for the Gospel to touch many souls through his singing. Music has always been an important part of his life, according to

‘O come, Emmanuel’ is about the need for a Savior of humanity. This song is fitting for our season now. His video was just released last Christmas, and it now has more than 95K views. The snow-capped mountains and breathtaking views are an excellent backdrop for the video.

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

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

O come, O Bright and Morning Star
And bring us comfort from afar!
Dispel the shadows of the night
And turn our darkness into light

Dispel the shadows of the night and turn our darkness into light–this is who Jesus is. It’s only Him who can turn our darkest days into the most joyful ones only if we put our complete trust in Him.
