Adoration

Take a moment to catch your breath, calm your wildly beating heart; pull your cloak tighter against the cold, come…

I’m here with the others
Who saw the heavens testify
Now I hang back in the shadows
I want to come close
I want to know.
She sees me shivering here
She smiles and with a nod,
I walk through the mud and straw
To

the newborn Son of God.

Come, let us adore Him–
He has come down to this barren land
Where we live,
And all I have to give Him–
Is adoration.

He raises a wrinkled hand
Through the dust and the flies
Wrapped in rags like we are
And with barely open eyes–

He takes my finger
        And He won’t let go
And He won’t let go…
It’s nothing like I knew before
And it’s all I need to know.

Come, let us adore Him
He has come down to the world we live in
And all I have to give Him–
Is adoration.

God is with us here!
Our Immanuel!
God is with us here!
Our Immanuel!

O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
Jesus, our Immanuel
Is with us here and He won’t let go.
