• Hannah Kerr - Emmanuel Lyrics

    From the album Emmanuel

    He was not the one we thought would come
    We were looking for a king
    But he didn't come in glory
    The author of the oceans and the sun
    Still He chose to be
    written in our story

    So he could feel our flesh and blood
    And we could know His love

    Emmanuel
    A manger for a bed
    No crown upon his head
    He came like us instead
    Emmanuel
    He meets you where you are
    He holds your heavy heart
    Our God is with us all
    Emmanuel, Emmanuel

    It was no mistake that He arrived
    Lost without a home
    Helpless as a baby
    So if we're feeling lost in our own lives
    We are not alone
    He has felt the same things

    Because He lived in flesh and blood
    We can know His love

    Emmanuel
    A manger for a bed
    No crown upon his head
    He came like us instead

    Emmanuel
    He meets you where you are
    He holds your heavy heart
    Our God is with us all
    Emmanuel, emmanuel

    Oh, what an invitation
    Oh, his only expectation
    Is for us to come and offer Him our all
    To kneel before the child who shall be called

    Emmanuel
    A manger for a bed
    No crown upon his head
    He came like us instead
    Emmanuel
    He meets you where you are
    He holds your heavy heart
    Our God is with us all
    Emmanuel, Emmanuel
