God With Us
We are singing this song as part of our Christmas Program this year. The words have been running through my head for days. It is one of those songs that makes me stop what I'm doing and spend a few moments in absolute worship.

I will have to link you it as they don't allow this video to be embedded in a post. I hope you can take the time to listen. It is amazing.

"God With Us" by Mercy Me

Who are we--- that You would be mindful of us?
What do You see--- that's worth looking our way?
We are free--- in ways that we never should be.
Sweet release--- from the grip of these chains.

Like hinges straining from the weight,
My heart no longer can keep from singing.

All that is within me cries
For You alone be glorified:
Emmanuel, God with us.

My heart sings a brand new song.
The debt is paid, these chains are gone
Emmanuel, God with us.

Lord, You know--- our hearts don't deserve Your glory;
Still You show--- a love we cannot afford.

Like hinges straining from the weight,
My heart no longer can keep from singing.

All that is within me cries
For You alone be glorified:
Emmanuel, God with us.

My heart sings a brand new song.
The debt is paid, these chains are gone.
Emmanuel, God with us.

Such a tiny offering
Compared to Calvary;
Nevertheless,
We lay it at Your feet.

Such a tiny offering
Compared to Calvary;
Nevertheless,
We lay this at Your feet.

The wonder of Emmanuel - God with us - fills my heart with such joy. Jesus not only paid the debt that I could never hope to pay, He has chosen to dwell with me. That, to me, is the wonder of Christmas. How I love this time of year.

Have a blessed sunday,

I love that song too. This is a time of year full of great songs...songs that lead us to worship and be reminded of God with us.

That's one of my favorite songs! I hear it on the radio all the time.

Yes, what a special time of year this is, and what an awesome Savior we have in Jesus!
