AMY GRANT lyrics - Emmanuel, God With Us

AMY GRANT
"Emmanuel, God With Us"
(Amy Grant, Chris Eaton, Robert Marshall)

We dim the light
We stoke the fire
We breathe the ever-green
Young ones wait
While the old ones make up
Tales of how it used to be

China dolls, candy corn
Painted wooden toys
Treasures found to the wondrous sound
Of carolling the Savior
Born to us on Christmas morn

[Chorus:]
Emmanuel, God with us
Emmanuel
Emmanuel, God with us
The son of Israel

And still he calls through the night
Beyond the days of old
A voice of peace to the weary ones
Who struggle with the human soul

All of us travelers
Through a gvien time
Who can know what tomorrow holds
But over the horizon
Surely you and I will find

[Chorus]

And the years they come
And the years they go
Through we may forget somehow
That the child once born in Bethlehem
Is still among us now

[Chorus]
