  • The world waits for a miracle
    The heart longs for a little bit of hope
    Oh come, oh come, Emmanuel
    A child prays for peace on Earth
    And she's calling out from a sea of hurt
    Oh come, oh come, Emmanuel

    And can you hear the angels singing

    Glory to the light of the world
    Glory, the light of the world is here

    The drought breaks with the tears of a mother
    A baby's cry is the sound of love
    Come down, come down, Emmanuel
    He is the song for the suffering
    He is Messiah, the Prince of Peace has come
    He has come, Emmanuel

    Glory to the light of the world
    Glory to the light of the world
    Glory to the light of the world
    Glory to the light of the world
    For all who wait
    For all who hunger
    For all who've prayed
    For all who wonder
    Behold your King
    Behold Messiah
    Emmanuel, Emmanuel

    Glo-glory to the light of the world
    Glory to the light of the world
    Glory to the light of the world
    Behold your King
    Behold Messiah
    Emmanuel, Emmanuel

    The world waits for the miracle
    The heart longs for a little bit of hope
    Oh come, oh come Emmanuel Writer/s: LAUREN DAIGLE, PAUL DUNCAN, PAUL MABURY
