O Come, O Come, Emmanuel”

O come, O come, Emmanuel,  

And ransom captive Israel, 

That mourns in lonely exile here  

Until the Son of God appear. 

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel  

Shall come to thee, O Israel.  

 

O come, thou Wisdom from on high,  

And order all things, far and nigh; 

To us the path of knowledge show; 

And teach us in her ways to go.  

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel  

Shall come to thee, O Israel.  

 

O come, thou Dayspring, come and cheer  

Our spirits by thine advent here;  

Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,  

And death’s dark shadows put to flight.  

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel  

Shall come to thee, O Israel.  

 

O come, Desire of nations, bind 

All peoples in one heart and mind; 

Bid envy, strife, and quarrels cease; 

Fill all the world with heaven’s peace.  

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel  

Shall come to thee, O Israel. 

 

Welcome and Prayer of Praise

“Hark the Herald Angels Sing/King of Heaven” 

 

Hark the herald angels sing glory to the newborn King 

Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled 

Joyful all ye nations rise, join the triumph of the skies 

With angelic hosts proclaim Christ is born in Bethlehem 

Hark the herald angels sing glory to the newborn King 

 

Hail the heaven born Prince of Peace, hail the Son of righteousness 

Light and life to all He brings, risen with healing in His wings 

Mild He lays His glory by, born that man no more may die 

Born to raise the sons of earth, born to give them second birth 

Hark the herald angels sing glory to the newborn King 

 

King of heaven, come down, King of heaven, come now 

Let Your glory reign, shining like the day, King of heaven come 

King of heaven, rise up, who can stand against us 

You are strong to save, in Your mighty name, King of heaven, come 

 

Christ, by highest heaven adored, Christ, the ever-lasting Lord 

Late in time behold Him come, offspring of a virgin’s womb 

Veiled in flesh the God-head see, Hail the incarnate Deity 

Pleased as man with men to dwell, Jesus our Emmanuel 

Hark the herald angles sing glory to the newborn King 

 

King of heaven, come down, King of heaven, come now 

Let Your glory reign, shining like the day, King of heaven come 

King of heaven, rise up, who can stand against us 

You are strong to save, in Your mighty name, King of heaven, come 

 

King of heaven, come, King of heaven, come 

King of heaven, come, King of heaven, come 

King of heaven, come down, King of heaven, come now 

Let Your glory reign, shining like the day, King of heaven come

Song  

Behold Him

He who was before there was light 

Walked across the pages of time 

He who made every living thing, behold Him 

 

He who heard humanity’s cry 

Left His throne to wake as a child 

He became like the least of us, behold Him 

 

Jesus, Son of God, Messiah 

The Lamb, the Roaring Lion 

O be still, and behold Him 

 

He who dined with sinners and saints 

Healed the blind, the lost, and the lame 

Even now He is in our midst, behold Him 

 

He who chose a criminal’s end 

Paid with blood to settle our debt 

Buried death as He rose to life, behold Him 

 

Jesus, Son of God, Messiah 

The Lamb, the Roaring Lion 

O be still, and behold Him  

Jesus, Alpha and Omega 

Our God, the Risen Savior 

O be still and behold Him 

Oh, Oh, Oh 

 

Bridge: 

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty 

Worthy, worthy, worthy to receive all praise
