Emmanuel (song)

I recently discovered a new song by one of my favorite artists, which was released a few years ago. I have posted about songs by Laura Story before (here and here), and this one is one of my new favorites! I love her meaningful lyrics, her sweet voice, and her sincere devotion to our God.


You can listen to and download this song on iTunes here.

Emmanuel

Author:
Laura Story
Lyrics:
Once in royal David’s city
stood a lowly cattle shed,
where a mother laid her baby
in a manger bed:
Mary was that mother mild,
Jesus Christ her little child.

Chorus:
Emmanuel
The promise kept
Its longing of my heart for God in flesh
Through this child, all earth is blessed
Emmanuel

He came down to earth from heaven,
who is God and Lord of all,
and his shelter was a stable,
and his cradle was a stall;
with the poor, the scorned, the lowly,
lived on earth our Savior holy.

Bridge:
Our answered prayer
Our faith’s reward
Redemption’s near
Redemption’s here

Alt Chorus:
Emmanuel
We will rejoice
We will worship you, our Savior and our Lord
We will join creation’s voice
Emmanuel
