Sing we the song of Emmanuel
SING WE THE SONG OF EMMANUEL:
this the Christ who was long foretold;
lo, in the shadows of Bethlehem,
promise of dawn now our eyes behold.
God Most High in a manger laid;
lift your voices and now proclaim:
great and glorious, love has come to us—
join now with the hosts of heaven.
2 Come we to welcome Emmanuel:
King who came with no crown or throne;
helpless he lay, the invincible,
maker of Mary, now Mary’s son.
O what wisdom to save us all!
Shepherds, sages, before him fall;
grace and majesty, what humility!
Come on bended knee, adore him.
3 Go, spread the news of Emmanuel:
joy and peace for the weary heart;
lift up your heads, for your King has come,
sing for the light overwhelms the dark.
Glory shining for all to see,
hope alive, let the gospel ring;
God has made a way, he will have the praise—
tell the world his name is Jesus.
