“Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭7:14‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Dear World,

Do you know it is advent time? That Christ is coming? Immanuel means God with us. Would you stop for a minute or 100 to think about what you’re doing today? Are you making life better for folks? Worse? Would you stop to greet an orphan, widow, homeless guy? Would you be kind to your neighbors? Even just today? Would you turn off the news, noise, and get out there and enjoy your life, bring joy to life? Would you ponder how God came down to save us because he loves you? Yes YOU! Because he really is good. Would you take a minute or 100 to think about that?

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.
