Steven Curtis Chapman – Our God Is With Us lyrics

[Verse 1]
One of us is cryin' as our hopes and dreams are led away in chains,
And we're left all alone;
One of us is dyin' as our love is slowly lowered in the grave,
Oh and we're left all alone.
But for all of us who journey through the dark abyss of loneliness
There comes a great announcement - we are never alone -
For the maker of each heart that breaks, the giver of each breath we take
Has come to earth and given hope it's birth.

[Chorus]
And our God is with us, Emmanuel.
He's come to save us, Emmanuel.
And we will never face life alone
Now that God has made Himself known,
As Father and Friend, with us through the end, Emmanuel.

[Verse 2]
He spoke with prophets' voices and showed Himself in a cloud of fire,
But no one had seen His face;
Until the One Most Holy revealed to us His perfect heart's desire,
And left His rightful place;
And in one glorious moment, all eternity was shaken,
As God broke through the darkness that had kept us apart.
And with love that conquers loneliness, and hope that fills all emptiness
He came to earth to show our worth.

[Chorus]
And our God is with us, Emmanuel.
He's come to save us, Emmanuel.
And we will never face life alone
Now that God has made Himself known,
As Father and Friend, with us through the end, Emmanuel.

[Bridge]
So rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel has come!
And our God is with us, Emmanuel.
He's come to save us, Emmanuel.
And we will never face life alone
Now that God has made Himself known,
As Father and Friend, with us through the end, Emmanuel.
Our God is with us, Emmanuel!

    This is a really deep and meaningful song that's one of my favorite things about Christmas. First, it combines the genius of Steven Curtis Chapman, Michael W. Smith (who composed the music), and Brown Bannister (who produced the album), who were arguably three of the greatest minds in Christian pop in the 90's. That overall gives this song it's excellent tune and vocals. However, the most important part is the lyrics. At Christmastime, when most are happy and merry, it's hard to believe that others are not enjoying the season. But there are many for whom Christmas only holds bad memories of lost loved ones or crushed dreams. This song sums up the entire album, which is about how Christmas, instead of being merely a seasonal time for reflecting on fond memories, is really a celebration of gratitude because 2,000 years ago, a baby came in order to give the hope and relationship that anyone lost and lonely can hold on to, and make the sacrifice that makes peace and fulfillment possible. That is ultimately the purpose of Christmas, and it makes the joy of the season meaningful. That is what this song is about. God bless you, and Merry Christmas!
