You Will Find The Child celebrates the incarnation of Jesus that we read about in Luke 2:8-12:

"There were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.'” (NIV)

Our desire is that this project is used for community and personal worship that enables the local church and community to glorify God using the God given style, creativity, and talents of Emmanuel Community Church.

All ECC people involved with this project donated their time and talents.

Track Name: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

In Bethlehem, in Israel,
This blessed Babe was born
And laid within a manger
Upon this blessed morn
The baby's mother Mary
Did nothing take in scorn
O tidings of comfort and joy.

"Fear not then," then said the Angel,
"Dear shepherd do not fright,
This day is born a Savior
Of a pure Virgin bright,
To free all those who trust in Him
From Satan's power and might."
O tidings of comfort and joy.

And when they came to Bethlehem
Where our dear Saviour lay,
They found Him in a manger,
Where oxen feed on hay;
His Mother Mary kneeling down,
Unto the Lord did pray.
O tidings of comfort and joy.

Now to the Lord sing praises,
All you within this place,
And with true love and brotherhood
Each other now embrace;
This holy tide of Christmas
All other doth deface.
O tidings of comfort and joy.

God rest ye merry, gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember, Christ, our Saviour
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy
Track Name: Luke 2
Joseph left Galilee with Mary his future wife
They left for Bethlehem
Though she was with child
While they were in Bethlehem
Mary had a son
She wrapped him up in linen cloth
Laid him in a manger bed
There was no room for them
In a proper Inn

Glory to God in the highest
Peace on earth good will to all men!
Glory to God in the highest
Peace on earth good will to all men!

In the same countryside
Shepherds watch their flocks by night
Then the angel of the Lord came to them
The Lord’s glory shone round about
They were so afraid
That the angel said to them
“Fear not I bring good news
Tidings of great joy to you
Which shall be to all people
A Savior is born”

When the angel went away
The shepherds went to Bethlehem
They went to see for themselves
What the Lord made known to them
So they came in haste and found
Mary, Joseph and the Babe
When they had seen the Son
They made it known
To many others
As it had been foretold
Track Name: Savior Baby
A baby born in Bethlehem
A stable dark and cold
The stars shone bright that special night
A Savior baby, born

A baby born to be a king
The hope of all the world
A baby born to die for us
His life, redeeming love

The shepherds came to see the babe
They sensed His majesty
For the angels told them of His birth
And glory shone ‘round Him

What Child is this
That lays resting
on His mother’s lap
So softly sleeps
Whom angels greet
With their anthems sweet
While shepherds watch

This, this is Christ the King
Whom shepherds guard
And angels sing
Haste, haste to bring Him laud
The babe, the Son…

He is a King, He is our Lord
He is the Promised One
Born to die for all mankind
All glory in the highest
Track Name: Let There Be Light
When God said,
Let there be light,
Did the universe shake and tremble
as white pierced through
the blackness
this void of nothingness,
with the words,
Let there be?

The prophet Jeremiah,
who had fire in his heart,
a burning shut up in his bones,
spreading like wildfire flame,
destroying forest and field,
he could not hold back.
He was consumed with light,
with speaking what was right.
Like all those prophets who foretold
Your coming birth,
this promise fulfilled.
Your story wrapped in wonder of baby boy miracle,
dispersing the gloomy clouds of night,
putting death’s dark shadow to flight.
No longer concealed,
we reveal
this hope we hold with hearts full:
that He dispels with glorious splendor
the darkness everywhere;
So we repeat:
Let there be.
Even that Advent
star of wonder,
star that perplexed
and distressed 
those who could not see your coming.
The light enveloped Bethlehem night
as they waited in cave cold,
for this blooming rose,
for this long awaited promise of old.
Dispelling the darkness,
You came with bellows of birthing pain,
with the messiness of motherhood,
with the fulfillment of prophets from long ago.
When she held you that first time,
light in the darkness--
You were baby boy bundled
in soft skin,
hair matted down to a sheen
and lungs that exhaled newborn cries,
bringing us light through our tears.
This miracle child who would save the world,
this grace-giving,
The One, who showed us how to fight
by giving up his life.
This creation story,
This Advent night,
This baby born
making all the broken things right.
This is the story of every lost soul
who longs for the cry of
Let there be light.
Your Word drenched in fire,
set our hearts aflame,
to rage against the night,
to hold in our hearts this light,
this star of wonder,
this baby boy of hope.
We cry out at your birth,
with all the earth:
Let there be light.

Track Name: O Holy Night
Oh holy night
The stars were brightly shining
It is the night of the dear Savior's birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till he appear'd and the soul felt its worth
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn

Fall on your knees
Oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine
Oh night when Christ was born
Oh night, O holy night, O night divine

Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy name

Christ is the Lord
O praise His name forever.
His power and glory ever more proclaim.
His power and glory ever more proclaim.
Track Name: Joy To The World
Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
Let earth receivee her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And Heaven and nature sing
 And Heaven and nature sing

And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing

The Lord is come, The Lord is come
The Lord is come, and Heaven, and nature sing

Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy

The Savior reigns! The Savior reigns!
The Savior reigns! Repeat, the sounding joy

He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of his righteousness
And wonders of His love
And wonders of His love
And wonders, wonders, of His love

His truth and grace, His truth and grace
His truth and grace, And wonders of His love

The Lord is come, The Lord is come
The Lord is come, and Heaven, and nature sing
Track Name: Bleak Hallelujah
In the bleak midwinter
Frosty wind made moan
Earth stood hard as iron
Water like a stone
Snow had fallen, snow on snow
Snow on snow
In the bleak mid-winter
Long ago.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
All Creation sings

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
, Hallelujah to the King

What can I give Him
Poor as I am
If I were a shepherd
I would bring a lamb
If I were a wise man
I would do my part
Yet what I can, I give Him
Give my heart
