Songs of thanks and praise, of lament and longing, of restoration and return have been on our lips for millennia. The verses of the ancient hymn, “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel”, explore and celebrate the many names of Jesus. Drawn from the book of Isaiah, the O Antiphons
have been sung in churches and monastic communities since
at least the eighth century. These beautiful and awe-inspiring
phrases present a way for us to sing along with the story of God,
to ponder and praise the many names of our Lord.
Through meditations, art, poems, and photos created by people
from across the church, this book offers space and time to
embrace Jesus’ presence among us now—and await his coming in
glory. Enjoy these prayers and praises throughout the seasons of
Advent and Christmas.
O Come, O Come, Emmanuel. Rejoice!
