Friday Song Of The Day – Emmanuel (Hallowed Manger Ground)

On my other blog (a geeky technical site) I have a tradition of posting a Friday Song Of The Day. I figured that it might be a fun idea for this blog as well, only with a more family oriented focus. So for this very first FSOTD of the Franzone Family Blog I give you Emmanuel (Hallowed Manger Ground), which also brings in the Christmas season quite nicely. Here are the lyrics:

Verse 1
What hope we hold this starlit night
a King is born in Bethlehem
Our journey long, we seek the light
that leads to the hallowed manger ground

Verse 2
What fear we felt in the silent age
four hundred years can he be found
But broken by a baby’s cry
rejoice in the hallowed manger ground

Emmanuel, Emmanuel
God incarnate here to dwell
Emmanuel, Emmanuel
Praise His name Emmanuel

Verse 3
The son of God, here, born to bleed
a crown of thorns would pierce His brow
And we beheld this offering, exalted now, the King of kings
Praise God for the hallowed manger ground

And here is a YouTube video with the music, some nice pictures and the lyrics embedded as well. Enjoy!
