“Sing We the Song of Emmanuel” started with the general theme of Christmas and the song title. The song evolved with a joyful and majestic sounding tune—and we asked the question “what does this tune want to say about Christmas and about the coming of Jesus?” We tried to combine the mystery of the Christmas story with the joy, jubilation, and majesty that we celebrate at Christmas.
Verse three of “Sing We the Song of Emmanuel” embodies all that we really want to communicate with this song. —Matt Papa
Go spread the news of Emmanuel
Joy and peace for the weary heart
Lift up your heads for your King has come
Sing for the light overwhelms the dark
Glory shining for all to see
Hope alive let the gospel ring
God has made a way
He will have the praise
Tell the world his name is Jesus
