Hope has come To the world Heaven's son is Born to earth To hide beneath our Flesh and bone Call us friend And call this home
Emmanuel God with us God with us Emmanuel God with us
Love has come Weighted down By splintered beam And thorny crown To take our nails And taste our steel Spill his life And grace reveal
Savior God for us God for us Savior God for us
Heaven come And take our hand Whisper till we understand Move our stubborn Hearts to love The very least As you love us
Spirit be God in us God in us Spirit be God in us
Emmanuel Savior Spirit be God of us God of us
Story Behind The Song: I'm fascinated by the idea that God is self-centered. He doesn't ever do anything with me as the ultimate reason. Jesus was born, died, lived again and lives in me today for only one reason: to make God known. Being a disciple of Christ means abandoning every other goal and desire and living to do the same - to make Him known. More and more I believe that He is made known not by bumper stickers and T-shirts, not by church attendance or the right answers, not by being good, but by loving the least.
