O Emmanuel


O Emmanuel, king and lawgiver,
desire of the nations, Savior of all people:
Come and set us free, Lord our God.

O Emmanuel, meaning God is with us.God is with us, an integral part of our lives and never separated from us;Emmanuel as part of creation and entered into creation, and into our lives, in the same manner we enter into this his creation. O Emmanuel, God speaks and reveals to us the Creator as part of creation and through creation. O Emmanuel, God enters not surrounded by the wealth and luxury of mans design, but through a poverty that emphasizes a divine awe and splendor. Put aside are the emperors with their conquering ideology and the kings that convince themselves they are the Creators equal . False idols that have eyes that can not see or ears that cannot hear are exposed as the mere trinkets of mans making. O Emmanuel comes to set us free from the sinful designs that are of our own making, and to bring us back into union with Gods own creation.

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel,
and ransom captive Israel,
that mourns in lonely exile here
until the Son of God appear.
