Emmanuel Comes: A Poem for Advent

Updated on December 2, 2012

Prepare the way!

Emmanuel comes

To this world of desolation

To this land of war, hunger, and disease

The Prince of Peace comes

He will wipe away every tear

We will cry no more

He is Emmanuel

And God is with us

A promise kept to the ages

We were given a child

This is love

To become one of us

To ransom us

Pay the price

A sacrifice

Emmanuel comes

Prepare your hearts

That he will find room

Fit for a king

The King of Kings

Emmanuel comes

Let the trumpet sound

We wait

Eager with the pangs of anticipation

Emmanuel comes

Prepare the way!
