Hannah Kerr - Emmanuel Lyrics




He was not the One we thought would come
We were lookin' for a king
But He didn't come in glory
The Author of the oceans and the sun
Still He chose to be
Written in our story

So He could feel
Our flesh and blood
And we could know
His love

Emmanuel
A manger for a bed
No crown upon His head
He came like us instead
Emmanuel
He meets you where you are
He holds your heavy heart
Our God is with us all
Emmanuel
Emmanuel

It was no mistake that He arrived
Lost without a home
Helpless as a baby
So if we're feelin' lost in our own lives
We are not alone
He has felt the same things

Because He lived
In flesh and blood
We can know
His love

Emmanuel
A manger for a bed
No crown upon His head
He came like us instead
Emmanuel
He meets you where you are
He holds your heavy heart
Our God is with us all
Emmanuel
Emmanuel

Oh, what an invitation
Oh, His only expectation
Is for us to come and offer Him our all
To kneel before the Child who shall be called

Emmanuel
A manger for a bed
No crown upon His head
He came like us instead
Emmanuel
He meets you where you are
He holds your heavy heart
Our God is with us all
Emmanuel
Emmanuel

    He was not the one we thought would come
    We were looking for a King
    But He didn't come in glory
    The Author of the oceans and the sun
    Still he chose to be
    Written in our story


    So He could fill our flesh and blood
    And we could know His love


    Emmanuel, A manger for a bed
    No crown upon His head
    He came like us instead
    Emmanuel, He meets you where you are
    He holds your heavy heart
    Our God is with us all
    Emmanuel


    It was no mistake that He arrived
    Lost without a home
    Helpless as a baby
    So if we're feeling lost in our own lives
    We are not alone
    He has felt the same thing


    Because he lived in flesh and blood
    We can know His love


    Emmanuel, A manger for a bed
    No crown upon His head
    He came like us instead
    Emmanuel, He meets you where you are
    He holds your heavy heart
    Our God is with us all
    Emmanuel
    Emmanuel


    Oh what an invitation
    Oh His only expectation
    Is for us to come and offer Him our all
    To kneel before the child who shall be called
    Emmanuel, a manger for a bed
    No crown upon His head
    He came like us instead
    Emmanuel, He meets you where you are
    He holds your heavy heart
    Our God is with us all
    Emmanuel
    Emmanuel

    You were amazing last night in Mississippi, K-Love Music Christmas Tour..

  3. Blake Brookerd

    Heard it on the radio yesterday driving home. The lyrics knocked me off balance. Moving song.

  4. Bill Harper

    Christmas or Advent is still 2 months away but this is a song I can listen to all year round. Beautiful!

  5. Dan Novel

    Oh, I love your voice!

    ขอบคุณพระเจ้า

  14. deewanayar

    where can i get piano keys/chords for this song?

  15. William Lemmond

    This song is one of only a few on "your encouraging [W]PER ... that actually encourages me at all. I've been waiting for over 50 years for basic blessings most people take for granted.

    I'm really fed up with waiting for God. Look up "Long sleeves or short sleeves" and "Africa," and ask yourself why God didn't stop a whole school of kids from having their arms cut off, their only cruel, mocking choice being whether the cuts would be below or above their elbows.

    And right after talking about the widow and the unjust judge, Jesus promised "justice, quickly." Where's that? "Justice delayed is justice denied." - practically everyone else.

    So I'm not encouraged when some idiot sings about Jesus coming to us "in the eye of the storm" - when the winds are actually gone for a bit, instead of during the storm, when it hits again, blowing hard from the opposite direction.

    And it's not true that "what don't kill you makes you stronger." Frostbite victims are for the rest of their lives more vulnerable to frostbite, and have to be more careful in cold weather. I suspect heat stroke is similar, in leaving a life-long increased vulnerability. Decades ago, I had an accident with a 10-pound tree seedling planter, and now I get pain in my right big toe.

    Another songs says that even if God doesn't help, He's still our only hope. That is NOT good news. If our only hope decides to be out when we call, then we have no hope. Why doesn't anyone check these songs with focus groups of long-suffering people? J. Vernon McGee was right: it's also very hard to reach the very poor for Jesus.

    I don't mind suffering when I know it's actually in the cause of doing some good for someone. But I am deeply offended by pointless suffering. If it's not pointless, then God needs to stop sitting on the info, stop treating us like mushrooms, keeping us in the dark and covering us with manure.

    So Hannah Kerr, thank you, from the bottom of my sad heart, for breaking through all the awful, briefly, during the one month that WPER plays Christmas music. Thank you for not just being clueless sunshine and rainbows, thank you for not saying what others have said.

    Emmanuel .. It's indeed not a mistake that HE came .. amen .. Thank you for sharing this song .. peace ..

  20. Robin Vincent

    The world expected a king; one of nobility in an earthly sense. Yet, Emmanuel was a lowly simple man yet God incarnate. I have listened to this many times. The lyrics tell the story.

  21. Marius M
