O Come Emmanuel

December 16, 2010

From time to time there is a song that captures the breath from my chest and connects me to something greater about life. A coworker and friend shared this beautiful song, written by some dear friends of hers, March of Morn. It acts as a lingering prayer of light and truth, grounding me in the beauty of the season. With advent longings, my heart aches for joy, truth, and restoration. They take the classic haunts of Come Oh Come Emmanuel and infuse it with an energy and hope that is coveted this particular holiday season.

[please listen]: Sing O Come Emmanuel

Bright morning star, come and lend us your light/ O Come Emmanuel
Burning brightly within us, hold back the night/ O Come Emmanuel
Come on, come on, light of the world, sing oh come Emmanuel
Hope to us all, a son has been born/ O Come Emmanuel
Echoes the song in Bethlehem/ O Come Emmanuel
In chorus sing, Hallelujah
