EMMANUEL

by Sarah Weir

 

Behold to you, O Bethlehem 

There will be One who will come 

Though you are so small among Judah 

He will come, from long ago 

 

He will come and bring 

He will come and bring to you a sign 

 

Emmanuel, Oh Israel 

God is with us, God before us 

Emmanuel, Go and tell 

God is with us, God is for us 

 

Behold to you, O Israel 

He will come, a Shepherd and King 

He will stretch from His hand a mighty sceptre 

From the gates of Zion He will lead

THE PROMISE 

by Sarah Weir 

 

Have I told you, son, what was told to us  

How we came to know our God?  

He was just a man with a blade in his hand  

held between his dear heart and his only son  

as our God looked upon His faithful one  

He said, "Abram! Spare your son.   

For he is the heir to a kingdom come.   

Your descendants will be like the stars in the sky"  

 

So it came to pass that the promise would last  

in the steady right hand of our God  

In their faith and fight to live godly and right  

Our fathers did walk in the path He chose  

and it lead us Egypt where Pharaoh rose  

But he said, "Moses spare my sons!  

For they are my people, my chosen ones  

You will lead them to a Land I have made for them  

and I will be their God”  

 

So the story goes that our pharaoh chose   

To be hardened, though plagues filled the skies  

But our God had planned through a Spotless Lamb  

To atone every household with stripes of blood  

The Angel of Death saw no fault in us   

And at the evening light  

though tears of sadness had filled their eyes  

the Angel of Death passed over us that night  

my child, never forget our God  

our God

Song of Deliverance 

by Stephanie Weir Andrews

 

The Lord is my strength, my song 

for He has become my salvation 

He is my God and I will praise Him 

God of our Fathers, exalted 

 

Your right hand, Oh Lord, in power 

has shattered the darkest of enemies 

Surging waters stood still as walls 

As we walked in victory 

 

The Lord is a warrior, Yahweh His name 

Chariots and armies will fall 

The Lord is His name 

Nations will fall to His side 

to Yahweh, be lifted High 

 

Enemies came and pursued 

drawing their swords, ready for battle 

but with one breath, You covered the sea 

and conquered our enemy 

 

Sing to the Lord, Highly exalted 

The horse and rider, He has thrown into the sea 

Sing to the Lord, Highly exalted 

The bonds He breaks, they are thrown into the deep 

Sing to the Lord, highly exalted 

The chains and fetters He has thrown into the sea 

Sing to the Lord, Highly exalted 

A slave no more, we are free, we are free

 

 

 

Shepherd Song

by Stephanie Weir Andrews

 

Lord You are my shepherd 

I shall not want anything 

You make me lie down in green pastures 

And by the still water streams 

 

You restore my soul till I’m Your’s forevermore 

You lead me to righteousness  for Your Name’s sake 

 

And yea, though I walk through the valley 

I will fear no death, I will fear no evil 

For You have promised You’ll go with me 

And comfort me with Your peace 

 

And in the presence of enemies a table sits before me 

You bring forth Your oil and anoint my head 

And my cup overflows   

And my cup overflows 

 

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all my days 

And I will dwell in Your house, forever 

Forever bringing You praise

Hold On

by Sarah Weir

 

Hold on tight, Don’t be afraid 

Though the sun may seem like it’s

going down 

Be strong, and know Who’s you are 

 

Though arrows fall, He covers me 

He covers me, a shield to my heart 

 

Though thousands fall, He covers me 

Hold on 

Hold on 

Hold on

Just To Be With You

by Sarah Weir

 

Who can this be?Who looks down as the dawn? 

Beautiful moon, she is bright as the sun 

Capture my heart with one glance of your eyes 

I am your love, and my love, you are mine 

 

Waters cannot quench this love  

Nor a flood drown it out 

I would give my life to hold you, 

to love you, all of my days 

 

Just to be with you, my love 

Just to be with you 

I would give my life, my all  

Just to be with you 

 

Who can this be? who came down as a man

Bearing the weight of the world through pierced hands 

Capture our hearts, fill the darkness with light

You are the King, we have waited to find 

 

Waters cannot quench this love

Nor a flood drown it out 

I have given all to love you

For this love, I’ve given my life

He Is Here

by Sarah Weir

 

Lost and broken heart 

Need to find somewhere to go? 

Lost and weary one 

Come and find your way back home 

Here, oh beggar, here 

Come and find this Kingdom come 

Poor and widowed one 

Come and know redeeming love 

 

He has come, the Son of God 

 

Here with us, He came to love 

A lost and broken world 

And I believe, I believe 

He is here to save us all 

 

Come to Him little ones 

Come and claim your kingdom thrones 

Child-kings and little queens 

You are the inheritors 

Come, you prodigal 

Come and find you are a son

Come you sinner come 

You are never too far gone 

 

For He has come, the Son of God 

 

Come Come Come and see 

Hosanna Hosanna, behold our King 

Come Come Come and see 

Hosanna Hosanna, He is the King

Adonai

by Sarah Weir

 

Long ago before the dawning of our time 

You were there to breathe the breath of life 

Through the desert wandering children called Your name 

Though their doubts prevailed, Your light displayed 

 

Adonai, Adonai, 

Adonai, Adonai We Praise Your name 

 

Through Jerusalem, You rode the streets that day 

Bringing to all men salvation’s way 

Like a Lamb led to the slaughter, You were prey 

Silently afflicted, You obeyed 

 

Sing for joy, you heavens, for the Lord redeems 

Shout aloud your praises, earth beneath 

He is risen, all creation rise and sing 

Sing of our Messiah, He is King

The Return

by Sarah Weir

[Instrumental Piece] The piece is meant to represent the time period after the death of Messiah, spanning the years throughout the ancient church with the awakening of the Gentiles and into today, a period of waiting for the Messiah to return. We wait in anticipation as time quickens towards His return, but we live in the victory and remembrance of His resurrection and promises. 

In the ethereal musical motifs of the piece as it transforms, it alludes to the signs and wonders that point towards His nearing return.

The nations wait in anxious anticipation of his victorious Return and the future Millennial reign.

Reign

by Sarah Weir

Eternal flame    

Call us by name 

Come to our aid in fire and rain 

Humbled by you we bow     

All of the earth resounds 

You are our God, You are our King 

 

For unto us, You’ve come 

For unto us, a Son 

and Your name will reign forevermore 

You are the Mighty One 

You are our Saving love 

And Your name will reign always 

 

Spirit of grace,    

Pour out in haste 

Upon the house of David You reign 

Fill up our hearts with fire,   

You are our one desire 

And we proclaim Your name in praise 

 

Chorus 2: 

For unto us, You’ve come 

For unto us, a Son 

And Your name will reign forevermore 

Nations will all bow down 

Kingdoms will lay their crowns 

And Your name will reign always

 

I Know You're Here

by Sarah Weir

 

You told the story of your love across the ages 

The scribes adored your every word 

You threaded lives throughout the fabric of these pages 

Together, they, Your sermon told 

 

Could they really know 

How far you'd go 

 

I know You're here 

I see you in the blazing fire 

Hear what You desire 

I know You're near 

I see you in the hidden places 

Whispered words are my oasis now 

 

You spoke a word into our mortal time and language 

In humbleness you gave it all 

You knew our hearts would wander far beyond our saving 

You knew the cost to bring us home 

 

Open up the sky, open up the heavens 

Let your beauty fire fall 

Open up the seals of the end of ages 

Your word is written there in stone 

 

Our ears will hear 

Our hearts draw near 

 

I know You're here 

I see you in the blazing fire 

Hear what You desire 

I know You're near 

I see you in the hidden places 

Help me hear You in the whisper now 

I know You’re here
