During the Christmas season, churches everywhere fill with the sound of voices singing a host of carols, jingles and hymns.

People love to rank and rate their favorite hymns, which is why we're putting the debate to rest with our Christmas hymns face-off.

Don't let the styles and artists reflected below influence your decision (but if you choose O Holy Night for Patti Smith we don't blame you.)

Let the competition begin!

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

It Came Upon A Midnight Clear

Silent Night

Go Tell It On The Mountain

O Holy Night

The First Noel

O Come, All Ye Faithful!

Joy To The World

Lo, How A Rose E'er Blooming
