about

The season of Advent gets little attention in the midst of Christmas anticipation, but this 5-song EP delivers thoughtful and engaging content which will enhance any Advent experience; one that should be, ironically, an "anticipation" of Christmas.

Track Name: O Come O Come Emmanuel
O come O come Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear

Rejoice rejoice Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

O come Thou Dayspring come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death’s dark shadows put to flight

Rejoice rejoice Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel
Track Name: He Has Done Great Things (Magnificat)
He has looked upon me in my humble estate
From now on generations call me blessed
He is mighty indeed and his mercy is great
Those who fear him cry holy is his name

My soul doth magnify the Lord
And my spirit rejoices in my God
My soul doth magnify the Lord
And my spirit rejoices in my God

He has shown us His strength He has scattered the proud
Thrones will tumble as humble spirits rise
And the hungry are filled as the rich fall away
Ancient mercies have turned to spoken grace

My soul doth magnify the Lord
And my spirit rejoices in my God
My soul doth magnify the Lord
And my spirit rejoices in my God

He has done great things He has done great things
He has done great things my soul rejoice
He has done great things He has done great things
He has done great things my soul rejoice

He has looked upon me in my humble estate
From now on generations call me blessed
Track Name: Set Us Free (Song of Zechariah)
Watching, waiting, the Savior we will see
Signs of promise, unveil Your mystery
Wearied by Ages and endless enemies
Prophets and sages will bow in worship

Lord, come and set Your people free from darkness
To follow in the way of peace You promised
Lord, come and set Your people free
Lord, come and set Your people free

You have raised up a Savior from on high
Lord, we bless You for You have heard our cry
Born salvation as darkness turns to light
Present and merciful Christ now hear us

For You have set your people free from darkness
To follow in the light of peace You promised
Lord, You have set Your people free
Lord, You have set Your servant free
Track Name: Nunc Dimittis (Song of Simeon)
Lord, now let me depart in peace
For I have seen Your salvation
A light in the darkness for weary ones
Your glory among all the nations

Come, Lord Jesus, come
Emmanuel, God with us
Light of the world given all for love
Glory to God in the highest

For us and for our salvation
Promise of old from on high
Wrapped in the garb of humanity
The Word who would suffer and die

Silently now You descend to us
Bidding our sorrows to cease
Beautiful Savior now flesh and blood
Bringing us life and peace

Come, Lord Jesus, come
Emmanuel born to us
Mystery revealing the Father’s love
Glory to God in the highest
Track Name: Christmas Hymn
The Virgin this day gives birth to One beyond all nature
And the earth drawls in
Offering a cave
To One who cannot be approached

Angels with shepherds give glory
and Magi make their way
By following after a star
For there is born to us a tiny child
who is God before all times began
Before all times began

Bethlehem reopens Eden’s gate
Come let us behold
What delights we have found hidden here
O Come and taste Gifts of paradise from within a cave

There we saw an unwatered root
budding forth forgiveness
There we found the still-sealed well
from which we longed to drink
And so to this we came
To see the birthplace of a tiny child
who is God before all times began

Noel noel Hallelujah
Emmanuel has come to us.
Noel noel Sing Gloria
For Jesus Christ is born to us
Noel noel Hallelujah
Emmanuel now flesh and blood
Noel noel We praise Your name
Our God before all time began

Noel Hallelujah
Emmanuel has come
Noel Sing Gloria
For Christ has come to us
