She lit a candle in the dowtown cathedreal
Quietly confessing counting on a blessing
She looked as if she had no where to go
I could see her weeping hands together
Hoping you would hear.
This is the time of year we hold our familes
Near but God let us be a friend to the hurting.

Oh Emanuel God with us spirit revealed
In us that we may be a hope to the world
Oh Emanuel God with us with a light to break
The drakness that we may show your hope
To the world Emanuel be God in us.

I moved in closer just so I oculd se her face,
Maybe she was a mother someones only
Duaghter her silver hair shimmered like
The snow, Christmas bells were ringing
Now beside her kneeling I asked her name
She said this was the time of year I had my family
Near but they've all gone and I have been so lonely

Oh Emanuell God with us, spirit revealed
In us that we may be a hope to the world
Oh Emanuel God with us with a light to break the darkness
That we may show your hope to the world Emanuel be God in us

So with my family that Christmas day a girl
Of sixty years could laugh and play as we watched
Her dance our eyes were full of tears

Oh Emanuel God with us spirit revealed in us that we
May be a hope to the world
Oh Emanuel God with us with a light to break the darkness
That we may show your hope to the world Emanuel be God in us

Be God in us
