Christmas Blessings...From Our Home to Yours!

 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 Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyranny
From depths of Hell Thy people save
And give them victory o'er the grave
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Day-Spring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death's dark shadows put to flight.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.
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'st give the Law,
In cloud, and majesty and awe.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

Christmas blessings from our home to yours, sweet friends...may your day be lovely and special as you celebrate our Lord's birth!

Love always in Jesus...

"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior,
which is Christ the Lord.
And suddenly there was with the angel,
a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace, good will toward men."
~ Luke 2:11,13-14 -

Such a beautiful song! My daughter played and sang it yesterday, and it was just so amazing to hear it once again, and then to come here today and see that it was the song you highlighted for Christmas Day - marvelous! What joy it is that Emmanuel has come into our hearts! Thank you Lord!

Praying you and your family continue to enjoy a blessed season of joy!

Oh, dear Kelly-Anne, this is one of our all-time favorite Christmas hymns. It's particularly so because of Emmanuel - God with us! Oh, what joy to know God came to earth...for us! And what a beautiful depiction of the difficult journey that Mary and Joseph made. Thank you for sharing this, and I wish you a joyous and blessed new year! Hugs!
