Oh Come Oh Come Emmanuel Lyrics


Below are the lyrics of this beautiful song: -
O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.

Refrain


Rejoice! Rejoice!

Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Wisdom from on high,

Who orderest all things mightily;
To us the path of knowledge show,
And teach us in her ways to go.

Refrain


O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free

Thine own from Satan’s tyranny;
From depths of hell Thy people save,
And give them victory over the grave.

Refrain


O come, Thou Day-spring, come and cheer

Our spirits by Thine advent here;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death’s dark shadows put to flight.

Refrain


O come, Thou Key of David, come,

And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.

Refrain


O come, O come, great Lord of might,

Who to Thy tribes on Sinai’s height
In ancient times once gave the law
In cloud and majesty and awe.

Refrain


O come, Thou Root of Jesse’s tree,

An ensign of Thy people be;
Before Thee rulers silent fall;
All peoples on Thy mercy call.

Refrain


O come, Desire of nations, bind

In one the hearts of all mankind;
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease,

And be Thyself our King of Peace.

When We Walk With The Lord Hymn (Trust And Obey) - History of hymn

When We Walk With The Lord History This hymn came about from an incident at one of Dwight L Moody's revival meetings in 1887. A young man who had just given his life to the Lord Jesus Christ was reportedly heard saying, 'I am not quite sure - I am going to trust and obey.' 
The music director of the Moody Bible Institute, Professor Towner, was present at the meeting when these words were uttered. Based on these words, Professor Towner with the help of John Sammis, who developed the lyrics, composed the music to this hymn Trust and Obey or When we walk with the Lord.
The words seem so simple but they express the feelings of many Christians. It is not easy to trust and obey but that is what we are all called to do if we are to be happy in Jesus.
This song has remained popular with many Christian singers to this day and it is my hope that you too will be blessed by this simple but powerful Christian song.

Be Still For The Presence of The Lord Lyrics and Story Author: David J Evans

Story Behind "Be Still For The Presence of the Lord" For me and many Christians I believe, Be Still For The Presence Of The Lord, ranks high among worship hymns of all time. It is a beautiful song with a clear and simple message.
It is a call for us to tune out everything and focus on the Lord. The Holy One is here and nothing else matters.
It is one of the most beloved modern hymns that are full of the teachings of the scripture. It reminds me of the tradition long gone where hymns were used as vehicles for spreading the teachings of the church.
The author of this hymn is David J Evans who wrote this song in the 1980s.
The inspiration for this hymn is the story of Jacob fleeing from his brother. While in the wilderness he had a dream where he saw angels going up and down a ladder to heaven. The old Testament says, " ‘then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “surely the Lord is in this place and I did not know it.”

I have also read somewhere where it is said that this …

Will Your Anchor Hold?- Story Behind This Classic Hymn

Will Your Anchor Hold History The author of this hymn, "Will Your Anchor Hold", is Priscilla Owens. She was born in Baltimore, USA in 1829 of Scottish and Welsh blood. For over 50 years Priscilla Owens was actively involved in work for Christian youths and most of her songs were therefore composed for children. 
Besides this hymn she is also well known as the composer of another beloved Christian hymn, "We have heard a joyful sound". She also composed several other hymns during her fruitful life on earth.
"Will Your Anchor Hold" was sung outside the door of the dying hymn-writer Mary Fawler Maude (Thine For Ever! God of love). She sent her singers the message, "Tell them that it does not fail - it holds."
The hymn suggests that personal stability can only come from the right foundations. It employs a seafaring analogy in making its point. Will Your Anchor Hold Lyrics Below are the lyrics of this Christian hymn classic:-
