Emmanuel: God with Us . . . by Joseph Littlefield

Emanuel; God with us . . . by Joseph Littlefield

Though one day you began all worlds and hold them all together.

Tonight she holds you in her arms and keeps you from the weather.

Though one day you will heal the sick and give the blind their sight.

Tonight she sings into your ear - kisses your brand new eyes.

Emanuel; God with us.

Though one day you will feed the many and walk upon the sea.

Tonight she feeds you at her breast and rocks you into sleep.

Though one day you will save the world, the victor over death.

Tonight she touches your untouched skin, feels your gentle breath.

Emanuel; God with us.

Though one day every knee will bow and every tongue confess.

Tonight she places you on her knee and sooth you from distress.

Though one day you will reign with truth and honor as your crown.

Tonight she counts your tiny toes and swaddles you around.

Emanuel; God with us.

Though one day you will set all right and bask in power high

Tonight she keeps you close to her to quiet your little cries.

Though one day you will be the Lamb, of whom all angels sing.

Tonight she holds God in her hands - the humble, humble king.

Emanuel; God with us.
