“Emmanuel” – Musical Musings in March (Sabbatical Post)


One more Christmas tune…Christmas music is perhaps my all-time favorite music because of the hope and joy it brings to my heart.


DSC03935mWithin the past few years, this song, “Emmanuel” has quickly become one of my favorite Christmas songs. Yes it speaks of Emmanuel and how God sent Jesus to be with us, but it goes one step further.


This song says that Jesus is with me. Personally with me. And what that actually means in my life. There is no more loneliness. There is no more heartache. There is no more brokenness. Because of Emmanuel.


When we allow Emmanuel to be part of our lives, our day-to-day lives, we have all that He has to offer all the time. What a wonderful gift God gave mankind, no, what God gave to me on that first Christmas. Emmanuel.


So here are the words and a link to the video sung by Anthony Evans. I pray you’ll receive a blessing from “Emmanuel.”


No decorations

No tree with tinsel, no light this year at home

The rooms are silent, no carols playing

For the first time she’s all alone

But what a wonder, she says there’s comfort


Emmanuel our God is with us, yes he’s with us still

Emmanuel he has not left us and he never will


They maybe next door

Maybe the next row

But there’s someone with a heartache

They face the season, the happy greetings with no joy in this holiday

For all the broken, here in this moment


Emmanuel our God is with us, yes he’s with us still

Emmanuel he has not left us and he never will

He never will

He never will[i]


Anthony Evan shares this beautiful song with us…have a listen by clicking here.


“All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: ‘The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel’—which means, ‘God with us.’” (Matthew 1:22-23 – NIV)


Today God offers His presence to anyone who is willing to accept Jesus as their personal Savior. If you want to make this decision, please feel free to contact me or find someone who can point you in the right direction. God cannot wait to be in your presence. Maybe it’s time for you to get excited about being in His.


As you go through your day today, remember that God is with you. He is always with you (Matthew 28:20b). He will never leave you (Hebrews 13:5). He loves you (1 John 4:9-11).


So today I say, Merry Christmas! God is with us!


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,



[i] Emmanuel, Anthony Evans, Composed by Tony Woods and Chad Cates, 2009
