Bethlehem--Glory In The Highest

Standing in the city of Bethlehem, looking out on the Shepherd's Fields I can just imagine the heavens opening up and the angels descending and shouting, "Glory to God in the highest, unto to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior which is Christ the Lord."

Emmanuel, "El" means
"God," the rest of the word means
"with us," the "with us God."
He created us to be with us. He gave each of us a longing for Him by creating every single human being with a "with" need. While the world carried on unconcerned, the infant Emmanuel cooed and kicked and toddled His way to His feet. God, the Immortal Invisible, walked among His people, Israel, as they sojourned through the wilderness. But not until now did His invisible feet sink into the sand, shod with skin, making visible prints. And God was with us. Emmanuel.
"Glory In The Highest" by Chris Tomlin

You are the first
You go before
You are the last

Lord, You're the encore.

Your name's in lights, for all to see
The starry host declare Your glory.

Glory in the highest
Apart from You there is no god
Light of the world
The Bright and Morning Star
Your name will shine for all to see
You are the one
You are my glory

And no one else could ever compare
To You, Lord
All the earth together declares
Glory in the highest to You, Lord

All the earth will sing Your praise
The moon and stars, the sun and rain
Every nation will proclaim
That You are God and You will reign
Glory, glory hallelujah
Glory, glory to You, Lord
Glory, glory hallelujah
