Isaiah 7:14...



I love the words of the song, O Come, O Come Emmanuel...

O come, O come, Emmanuel,
and ransom captive Israel,
that mourns in lonely exile here
until the Son of God appear.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel,
shall come to thee o Israel!

O come, Thou Wisdom, from on high,
and order all things far and nigh;
to us the path of knowledge show,
and teach us in her ways to go. 

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel,
shall come to thee o Israel!

O come, o come, Thou Lord of might,
who to thy tribes on Sinai's height
in ancient times did give the law,
in cloud, and majesty, and awe. 

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel,
shall come to thee o Israel!

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse's stem,
from ev'ry foe deliver them
that trust Thy mighty power to save,
and give them vict'ry o'er the grave. 

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel,
shall come to thee o Israel!

O come, Thou Key of David, come,
and open wide our heav'nly home,
make safe the way that leads on high,
that we no more have cause to sigh. 

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel,
shall come to thee o Israel!

O come, Thou Dayspring from on high,
and cheer us by thy drawing nigh;
disperse the gloomy clouds of night
and death's dark shadow put to flight. 

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel,
shall come to thee o Israel!

O come, Desire of the nations, bind
in one the hearts of all mankind;
bid every strife and quarrel cease
and fill the world with heaven's peace.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel,
shall come to thee o Israel!

I'm so thankful that God did send us our Emmanuel, His Son Jesus,
and I'm oh, so thankful that He is coming again.
Longing for that day...

  2. Love this song. I once led a praise dance team at church and we did a dance to this song one year! It was beautiful.

  3. I have been so struck with the words of Christmas songs this season. I started listening to them mid November. We can sing them with such familiarity & miss the depth of meaning to be found in them. I am praying that this Advent season, each song would fall on us in a fresh way. So glad you shared this song today!
    Blessings,
    Joanne
