Expectantly we wait for You
You're a faithful God in all You do
Your promises have been fulfilled
When a baby boy was born to us
Was born to us, Lord Jesus Christ

Emmanuel, Emmanuel
Our God has sent His only Son
Awake our hearts to sing Your praise
Our Lord has come to change the world
To change our hearts

They waited long for the Messiah
They were longing for their King to come
Keep our hearts and minds awake
For when our King will come again
Will come again, Lord Jesus Christ

In darkness and in quiet we hear
The sound of Your salvation near
Repentantly we bow the knee
For Christ has come in glorious light
In glorious light, Lord Jesus Christ
