Song of the Month

(Every month we will be featuring a new or a lesser sung hymn. Worship leaders can then make use of this hymn during worship. The idea is to introduce a new song to the church with a particular theme. Or to revive a lesser sung hymn)

This month’s song: “Sing We The Song of Emmanuel”

Lyrics of the Song:

Verse 1:
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

Verse 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

Verse 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

Gloria, Gloria!
