The singing of O Come, O Come, Emmanuel, signals the beginning of the Advent Season. The song echoes the hearts of those who are waiting for the coming of the Messiah – the fulfilment of God’s promise to His people.
Though it was first published in England in 1854, its roots go back over a thousand years before that. In fact, it is one of the oldest texts sung by the Church at any time of year.
We will be singing this traditional Advent Carol at assembly this week. Here are the lyrics if you want to prepare with us!!
