Carols: O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
This week we will be reflecting on the carol, “Emmanuel.” Interestingly, we don’t know when this carol was first written or sung, but many scholars believe that the words of this song go back as far as the 6th century.
Now, if you are familiar with the song, you know the word “rejoice” is repeated throughout the carol. “Rejoice, rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee O Israel.” And why should we rejoice? We rejoice for the best reason of all. We rejoice because Emmanuel is coming. Our savior, Emmanuel, God with us, is coming. And that is a reason to celebrate.
So join us for this message as we continue our current series, Carols.
