Countdown to Christmas--Day 5

This song is one of my favorites. It is NOT on a Christmas album, but I always felt it was the perfect kind of Christmas song. The artist is Shaun Groves.

God With Us
by Shaun Groves

Hope has come
To the world
Heaven's son is
Born to earth
To hide beneath our
Flesh and bone
Call us friend
And call this home
Emmanuel
God with us
God with us
Emmanuel
God with us

Love has come
Weighted down
By splintered beam
And thorny crown
To take our nails
And taste our steel
Spill his life
And grace reveal

Savior
God for us
God for us
Savior
God for us

Heaven come
And take our hand
Whisper till we understand
Move our stubborn
Hearts to love
The very least
As you love us

Spirit be
God in us
God in us
Spirit be
God in us

Emmanuel
Savior
Spirit be
God of us
God of us
