O Come O Come Emmanuel: Lyrical Christmas Countdown, Day 7

IMG_7950Day seven’s lyrics are a plea that a rescuer will come and redeem His captive beloved. For centuries, the people of Israel were told they were God's people and yet they were in deep despair: civil unrest, unfair treatment, attack from all sides. Their hearts begged God for freedom from tyranny, never realizing God would bring big “F” Freedom from big “T” Tyranny.

God is like that: He gives us more than we could ever ask for!

Day 7 of the Lyrical Christmas Countdown is from O Come O Come Emmanuel, the version translated by John Mason Neale.

{During this countdown, I'll be posting my favorite #lyrics as a way to engage my soul and slow the bustle of my heart this Advent season.}
