My favorite Christmas song is O Come, O Come Emmanuel. There is simply something about the haunting music and thick lyrics that get to me every time. We sang it at church on Sunday morning, but I actually buggered up the PowerPoint lyrics for the praise team and choir so it lost it's loving feeling at the beginning of the 2nd verse. But God provided a reprieve last night at our Christmas @ Resonate service when our worship leader, Jesse Crowe, led it. Such good stuff. Take a listen to the yummy Bebo Norman give the song some life:
The best verse you don’t hear is:
O come, Desire of nations, bind
In one the hearts of all mankind;
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease,
And be Thyself our King of Peace.
Peace. What a great Christmas gift that would be.
