EMMANUEL the hymnal form
When winter in quietness sleeps
not long indoor nights or snowfall deep
not wreaths upon the door nor trees in stark silhouette
not lights in windows bright or the holiday banquet;
not nativity plays nor carols, joyful sung
not presents exchanged nor hallway baubles humg;
but God with us ,Emmanuel
Jesus,come to us,to dwell.
inspired by Dudley-Smith form 'When the Lord'
