Lyrics
Oh a man named John The Baptist
Had been hearlding the news
About the coming of a Savior
For both the Gentiles and the Jews

And it happened in Judea
In the town of Bethlehem
With a bright star o'er the stable
Was born the Son Of Man

Oh the angels were rejoicing
As the tiny baby cried
For the hope of man's salvation
In a manger had arrived

Meek as a lowly shepherd
But the mightiest of kings
He gives peace and life eternal
To whosever calls His name

Oh Emmanuel
The Father's precious Son
Who forgives our sins and washes clean
The hearts of everyone

What a wonderful beginning
To the greatest story ever told
His birth still rings with promise
As true as in days of old

So let us sing His praises
And let us open up our hearts
And receive His timeless message
That gives us all a brand new start

Oh Emmanuel
The Father's precious Son
Who forgives our sins and washes clean
The hearts of everyone

Oh a man named John The Baptist
Had been hearlding the news
About the coming of a Savior
For both the Gentiles and the Jews
