Track Name: Come Thou Long Expected Jesus
Come thou long expected Jesus
Born to set Thy people free
From our fears and sins release us
Let us find our rest in Thee, in Thee

Israel's strength and consolation
Hope of all the earth Thou art
Dear desire of every nation
Joy of every longing heart

O come
O come
O come
O come

Born Thy people to deliver
Born a child and yet a king
Born to reign in us forever
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring

O come
O come
O come
O come
Track Name: Hark! A Thrilling Voice is Sounding
Hark! A thrilling voice is sounding
“Christ is nigh,” it seems to say
“Cast away the works of darkness,
O ye children of the day.”

Wakened by the solemn warning
From earth’s bondage let us rise
Christ, our sun, all sloth dispelling
Shines upon the morning skies

Hear our cries
Our hope is in you
Hear our cries we pray

Look in the sky! It’s a bird its a plane,
No! it’s the Lamb that was slain!
So we cry out loud with anticipation
For our ransom was paid
In full, yet my heart full of sorrow
Things I’ve done today that I’ll
Be ashamed of tomorrow,
May I borrow a sleeve to cry?
I feel so full of grief inside, I sigh
Relieved only believing that for me He died
See Jesus I, only hope in you to lead the blind
So they can seek and find
You the root beneath the vine
Can’t wait till you arrive so we can drink the wine

Hear our cries
Our hope is in you
Hear our cries we pray
Track Name: One Winter's Night
If only that which is assumed could ever be redeemed
Then come to us within a womb, be born and wash our feet
And not our feet alone we pray but everything we know
That thou O Love would come and stay and all our sorrows go

O Love, born today come and find us
Search the darkness light the way come and guide us home

Yet thou will not be welcomed here still Love, please come and be
Our refuge, wipe away our tears though we will murder thee
But darkness only turns to day if you become the night
And we on you our darkness lay that it be swallowed in light

O Love, born today come and find us
Search the darkness light the way come and guide us home
Oh the sunrise seems so far away
Find us, Child of Bethlehem
Find us here the Son of Man
One winter’s night begins eternal summer morn
If only you are born

The gods we trusted and became will find no solace here
Beside his creatures low and lame the Son of God appears
A thousand years of “progress” past, a million hearts beguiled
Now Love alone will reign and last, within one little child

Blessed One, born today come and find us
Search the darkness light the way come and guide us home
Oh the sunrise burns the night away
Find us
Find us
Blessed One, born today come and find us
Search the darkness light the way come and guide us
One winter’s night begins eternal summer morn
If only you are born
Track Name: O Come, Emmanuel
O come, o come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appears

Chaotic, aching, waiting on someone to change it
This world we living in is breaking
Shaking from the pains of earthquakes, tsunamis and
temperature changes, recycling ain’t gonna save it
Let’s look at our behavior, a political agenda in a
state of complacence don’t even care about the nations
Oppressed countries in Africa being raped and enslaved
for natural resources we benefit from in the states
We in a war worldwide, mind and body
Sex trafficking around the globe buying up bodies
Young girls and young boys lives destroyed over lust
We claim to be religious, where are we putting our trust?
We just lost another brother a victim of gang violence
Can’t snitch justice fails cause the hood remains silent
We got welfare but most the world in poverty crying
Sick and dying cause they’re hungry, but no ones replying
Man! We in this broken world and no we can’t fix it
Demonic world system and its all about the riches
Corrupt top to bottom since the fall of our existence
We all know it, but just too scared to admit this
We try to make a change but no matter how persistent
We lack the power because we got evil in us
O Lord, my soul’s in deep anguish
How long, how long until this pain ends?

O come, o come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death’s dark shadow put to flight

Hi hater, I mean hi neighbor, we so conformed to this
world we don’t see the sinfulness in our nature
We’re broken individually, and indeed spiritually
We’ll even threaten your death and leave you bleeding fearlessly
But the issue is inward, we’re enslaved to our rage
Like when a white person uses the n-word
Blacks become a bitter race, blame it on The Man
Uncle Sams, unforgiveness we put in place
Half the time I don’t blame them, we only seem
good for entertainment it’s a shame black history’s been erased
For a country full of faith, we sh’oll need some grace
More divorces than ever new single moms every day
What happened to the love? What happened to the vows?
What happened to it takes a village to raise a child?
We back on the verge of virtual segregation
My education tells me I’m going to the state pen
Even my own race I have no relation
Only misguided hate, but if I have some patience
And trust in our God that He’ll bring salvation
Not just for you and me but His whole creation

Desire of nations bind
In one the hearts of all mankind
Bid our sad divisions cease
And be Thyself our King of Peace
Bid our sad divisions cease
And be Thyself our King of Peace

We need a King! We need a Savior!
Someone who can ransom us from our behavior
Satan I hate ya! Had a relationship with God
but cuz of you we had to break up
The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
O Come Emmanuel so we can make up
Sin in our hearts left a crimson stain but
You can cover our iniquities like a paint brush

Until the Son of God appear
Until the Son of God appear
Until the Son of God appear
Track Name: Angels We Have Heard on High
Angels we have heard on high
Singing sweetly through the night
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their brave delight

Gloria
Gloria
In excelsis

Shepherds, why this jubilee
Why these songs of happy cheer
What great brightness did you see
What glad tidings did you hear

Gloria
Gloria
In excelsis

Come to Bethlehem and see
Him Whose birth the angels sing
Come, adore on bended knee
Christ the Lord, the newborn King

Gloria
Gloria
In excelsis
