There is a spirit of anticipation filling the Earth
As we eagerly prepare to celebrate Your birth.
There is a pause lingering in the atmosphere
As we watch for the promise of peace to appear.
There is a swell of hope rising in the air
Releasing a joyful sound as we declare
“Emmanuel, O Emmanuel, You are Wonderful Counselor
You are Mighty God, You are the Everlasting Father
You are the Prince of Peace.
You are our light in darkness, hope in our times of despair
You clothe us in righteousness and garments of praise
You heal our broken hearts and anoint us with the gladness
You set us free from our burdens and sinful ways.”
There are smiles on our faces and the air is filled with mirth.
As the spirit of anticipation filling the Earth.
There are hands giving and hearts are reaching out far and near
As the promise of peace lingers in the atmosphere.
There are bells ringing, choirs singing, and feasts to prepare
As songs of hope rise in the air.
Isaiah 9:6 & 61: 3
