about

Something I haven't done before is to write a Christmas song. Let's face it there is no shortage of them already. It was only as I looked into Advent and Christmas this year and the mystery of the Incarnation, of Jesus as God actually becoming a man that I wanted to respond and try to put some of my thoughts and feelings into a song. A response in a creative format that stirs my heart. Something that we can sing together this Christmas. I hope this blesses you in this season and that you see something of the God/Man/Baby/ Creator that is new this year

lyrics

Emanuel


You are the risen God eternal
You are the baby who cane to save
You are the wisdom of the ages
In human frailty embraced the grave
We celebrate the coming of the King
The one for whom the hosts of heaven sing
A weary world has seen Your coming
So unto you our broken lives we bring

Rejoice the Christ has come-Emmanuel
Rejoice the holy one, now with us dwells-Emmanuel

You are the reason in creation
Yet humble hands surrendered to the cross
The mighty author of salvation
Came as a man to seek the lost
We celebrate the coming of the King
Join with the songs the herald angels sing
This hurting world now meets it’s Saviour
So unto You our hopes and fears we bring

To the darkness came the light, the glory of the heavens above
For You were here before you came and You’ll be coming back again
All this is Your gift of love
