Video Christmas Card – Come to Us, Emmanuel

Posted: November 21, 2010 in Life as it Happens...

An original song I wrote as a “video Christmas card” in 2010.

Come to Us, Emmanuel

Here we are, mid-December
Trying our hardest to remember
What it is we’re celebrating here

The days are short, the darkness lengthens
So we cling to the promise that strengthens
That in this place our God has come near

Come to us, come to us Emmanuel

Angels singing, “To God the glory”
As we enter into the story
And meet the savior Jesus at his birth

Shepherds run to the place where
The baby lies in the hay there
And the word of God resides on earth

Come to us, come to us Emmanuel
Come to us, abide with us Emmanuel

We long for peace
in the midst of violence
While hope is shattered by
our lingering silence
Justice will be torn from the hands of the weak
Unless a loving voice finds the courage to speak

And says
Come to us, come to us Emmanuel
Come to us, make us one Emmanuel
Make us peace, make us one Emmanuel

Come to us, come to us Emmanuel
