TSMSS - Emmanuel (Hallowed Manger Ground)

Saturdays in December cause such a dilemma: it's hard to decide whether to post one of the wonderful older songs of this blessed season or to share one of the new ones. There just aren't enough Saturdays!

Chris Tomlin and Ed Cash have once again written a stellar song. The words, music, and the pictures on this video are beautiful beyond words.

by Chris Tomlin and Ed Cash

What hope we hold this starlit night
A King is born in Bethlehem
Our journey long, we seek the light
That leads to the hallowed manger ground

What fear we felt in the silent age
Four hundred years--can He be found?
But broken by a baby's cry
Rejoice in the hallowed manger ground

Emmanuel, Emmanuel
God incarnate here to dwell
Emmanuel, Emmanuel
Praise His name Emmanuel

The son of God, here, born to bleed
A crown of thorns would pierce His brow
And we beheld this offering
Exalted now the King of kings
Praise God for the hallowed manger ground

Emmanuel, Emmanuel
God incarnate here to dwell
Emmanuel, Emmanuel
Praise His name Emmanuel
Praise His name Emmanuel

Oh, praise His name Emmanuel
