Neale: O come, O come, Emmanuel

Saturday, December 12, 2015
    Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
    —Matthew 1:23 (KJV)
O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.
    ... Anonymous & John Mason Neale (1818-1866), Mediaeval Hymns and Sequences, London: Joseph Masters, 1863, p. 171 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 1:23; Ps. 46:7; Isa. 7:14; 53:5; Matt. 20:28; Mark 10:45; John 1:14; 10:14-15; Rom. 3:24-26; Eph. 1:7; 5:1-2; 1 Tim. 2:5-6; Heb. 9:15; Rev. 5:9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the atonement.
