'O Holy Night' (1847) is a well-known Christmas carol by French composer Adolphe Adam to the French poem "Minuit, chrétiens" (Midnight, Christians) by Placide Cappeau (1808–1877). Unitarian minister John Sullivan Dwight created a singing edition based on Cappeau's French text in 1855. In both the French original and the English versions of the carol, the text reflects on the birth of Jesus and of humanity's redemption.
