Emmanuel (Hallowed Manger Ground)

Emmanuel (Hallowed Manger Ground)
Words by Chris Tomlin & Ed Cash. ©2009 CCLI Song #5601640

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

What fear we felt that silent age
So many years, can he be found?
Then 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

The Son of God here born to bleed
A crown of thorns would pierce His brow
And we beheld His offering
Exalted now the King of Kings!
Praise God for the hallowed manger ground
