Christmas is on my mind this morning... came across the lyrics to the first Christmas song I ever wrote,
"Behold Emmanuel"  Written FOR THE MUSICAL, A MANGER STORY,
while serving as worship Pastor at Westside Church, Bend, in about 1989!  I've added the recording to the music player on this website, Enjoy!!!! SLA



Behold Emmanuel!
words & music by Stephen Levi Anderson
(C) `1990 Anderpsalms music Co.


Dark & cold, no room for a savior, 
No place for a newborn baby King to lay his head, 
story's told, star in the heaven's leading, 
Wise men whose hearts were seeking the baby where He lay,
 
In a manger on their knees, Behold Emmanuel, 
God with us on this Christmas day!

 

Clear & bright, the holiest night awaiting, 
Angels anticipating the coming of God's son
Starry Host, the promise of heaven waking, 
Rejoicing for He'd be taking, the sin of all the world!
 
In a manger on their knees behold Emmanuel
God with us on this Christmas day!
In a manger on their knees behold Emmanuel
God with us on this Christmas day!

 

Dark & cold, in need of a savior, unworthy of favor, 
Lord, my heart cries out to you
Son of God, blessed redeemer Jesus
Born in a manger, the manger of my heart

In a manger on my knees behold Emmanuel
God with us on this Christmas day!
In a manger on my knees behold Emmanuel
God with us on Christmas day!
In a manger on my knees behold Emmanuel
God with us on Christmas day!
In a manger on my knees behold Emmanuel
God with us...
On Christmas day!
