Wednesday Worship: O Come, O Come Emmanuel

From the Piano Guys.  Melodically, one of my favorite Christmas hymns.  Hauntingly beautiful.

O come, O come, Emmanuel 
And ransom captive Israel 
That mourns in lonely exile here 
Until the Son of God appear 
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel 
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

I must confess I have never considered the lyrics as an adult, although I've known them since childhood.  In this day, they seem very political as well as spiritual.  More thought required. I hope you enjoyed.

Peace & Blessings,
