Immanuel (From The Squalor Of A Borrowed Stable)

Here is a very nice song about the Savior. It was written by Stuart Townend. There are one or two lines I may have some disagreement with, but most of the song is beautiful.

Preformed by David Wesley.

Immanuel (From The Squalor of a Borrowed Stable)

Here are the lyrics, maybe someday I will have come up with some improvements in my ‘problem spots’, but for now, here are the lyrics as sung:

Immanuel (From The Squalor of a Borrowed Stable)

Verse 1
From the squalor of a borrowed stable
By the Spirit and a virgin’s faith
To the anguish and the shame of scandal
Came the Savior of the human race
But the skies were filled
With the praise of heav’n
Shepherds listen as the angels tell
Of the gift of God come down to man
At the dawning of Immanuel
Verse 2
King of heaven now the friend of sinners
Humble servant in the Father’s hands
Filled with power and the Holy Spirit
Filled with mercy for the broken man
Yes He walked my road and He felt my pain
Joys and sorrows that I know so well
Yet His righteous steps give me hope again
I will follow my Immanuel
Verse 3
Through the kisses of a friend’s betrayal
He was lifted on a cruel cross
He was punished for a world’s transgressions
He was suffering to save the lost
He fights for breath He fights for me
Loosing sinners from the claims of hell
And with a shout our souls are free
Death defeated by Immanuel
Verse 4
Now He’s standing in the place of honor
Crowned with glory on the highest throne
Interceding for His own beloved
‘Til His Father calls to bring them home
Then the skies will part as the trumpet sounds
Hope of heaven or the fear of hell
But the bride will run to her lover’s arms
Giving glory to Immanuel

Stuart Townend


Your Choice

Hello all, here is a poem I wrote. I wrote it a while back, but I was never satisfied with it. The first two stanzas were (and are) nice, but then my writing changed and I did not like the following verses as much.
So, reorganized the poem a little, I do not think I changed any words, and in one place I chose one word out of a list of options.
I hope this poem finds its way to whoever has need of it.

Your Choice

My friends let me tell you
Do not rush into things
Like your friends have before you
Take your time in deciding
The results that you want
They will be there forever, If you meant it or not

Be patient and think, you know what to do
Your passions will tell you to rush on through
But do not listen, your heart is capable
Of making the right choice, for passions are ‘makeable’.

Some people will rush, not looking to show,
Hoping to avoid by, claiming they didn’t know
The consequences that come and that they knew
Though rushing they chose, eternally too.

What do you want? Your family’s life,
Filled with joy, and heavenly light?
The gift we are given to choose as we will
Is given to be, and always fulfill
The purpose of God in bringing us home
To be with our family, and never alone
So please make your choice with heaven in mind
Your happiness then, is what you will find.
