Immanuel~

"I could not decide between these two versions of 'Oh Come, Oh Come Immanuel' so decided to post both. I hope this blesses you today as we look forward to Christmas, a time many all over the world celebrate the birth of Christ who was and is the promised Messiah, "Wonderful Counselor,Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace" Is. 9 :6 ,Savior, the Son of God, Immanuel!
"Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign ; Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel." Isaiah 7:14 "Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bear a Son, and they shall call Him Immanuel, which translated means, "God with us." Matthew 1:23

Oh, thank you, Kathy!

My husband and I were on the road yesterday in southern Ohio. It warmed my heart to see the beautiful signs in many yards depicting the real meaning of Christmas.

Lovely song, Kathy. I like them both, but I think I prefer the second one. The music of the first video is very haunting though. Wishing you a peaceful Sunday.

Mary said...

They are both lovely, Kathy. I couldn't presume to pick a favorite. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Ahh my all time favorite song, in and out of season but especially now when the very season itself adds to the vision of hearts waiting for randsom.

I love that song and I love both of those versions. My favorite, however, is when a friend of ours stood up in church-on Christmas Eve-and sang it a cappella. I wish I had it recorded. I can still hear it in my mind though.

I adore Enya's music.
Your header photo is so cute, makes me smile every time I see it.
Merry Christmas, Kathy, to you and your be-loved ones from Thistle Cove Farm.

I like the music from the first and the visual from the second.

This is one of my favorite songs of the season.

Thank-you for your kind comments..I was thinking about what each of you said about the hymn and as I watched many times the youTube videos I realized what I like about each rendition is the difference.And they are very different, yet the same hymn.

Enya's is ethereal, and hauntingly beautiful, bringing to my mind a higher and more heavenly thought of our Savior. The 2nd video reminds me of the very earthly cost to Jesus, to redeem us...that of sin, blood, pain, death...the death of the Son of God to redeem us from this world of sin and sorrow. Immanuel is triumphant in His love for us, praise Him!
