Believing: Day 5

In the dawn of redeeming grace.
I am a sucker for music that’s well done, especially in worship. This weekend, we went to church with our friends, Marni & Tim. The choir was outstanding, and the children’s choir was amazing. Add in an organ and full-blown orchestra while we all sang Christmas carols, and I felt like I had been transported to the brink of Heaven.
It was a wonderful way to begin Advent.

Hope. Peace. Love. Joy.

God stepping into this broken world and offering matchless grace to us.


Fear not O Israel
For there is peace still to come
A word to break the silence
A promise yet to bloom
The promise to redeem us
One to free us
Break the silence
End the violence In our hearts.

Emmanuel is sure to find us soon
The mighty root of Jesse, Star of Truth
And bring our sons to glory
Tell the story
Heal the broken and restore thee To His name.

The star will guide us to the humble place
Where Christ the King reveals His earthly face
And we will sing Emmanuel, God is with us
God is for us God is in us
We will sing…

We’re singing Alleluia
We’re singing Alleluia
Emmanuel, our God is with us
Emmanuel, our God is with us.
