You may be wondering why I’m posting my daily “Christmas Carol”, well, on my other blog – grandma’s cookie jar – I “carol” my readers each day between Thanksgiving and Christmas – I thought I’d do the same here.
Emmanuel means God with us; and this is why Jesus came . . . to be with us! This is why we celebrate Christmas. When I hear the song, O Come, O Come Emmanuel I think about what it would be like if we were still waiting for Him to appear and I rejoice in knowing He has come and we can know Him because He is with us!
The Piano Guys play this song so beautifully with the cello – I love cellos and this song is beautiful – enjoy it at this link!
“O come, Desire of nations, bind in one the hearts of all mankind; bid thou our sad divisions cease, and be thyself our King of Peace. O come, O come, Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel, that mourns in lonely exile here until the Son of God appear.”
