O Come, O Come, Emmanuel



I love this song and always have, though, I didn't know why in the past. Now I know it's because God was talking to me through a song all about his son, Jesus Christ, who is Emmanuel—"God is with us."

I get chills when I hear a good performance of this song.

We have a married couple at my parish who sing together for Mass when it's their turn in the schedule. They sing and harmonize so beautifully that I usually end up with tears in my eyes. I pray that I get to hear them sing this song before the season is over.
