Listen to song below:

music and lyric by Steve Bell
lyrics adapted from the Four Advent Oracles of Isaiah: 
2:1-5, 7:10-16, 11:1-10, 35:1-10

O ancient seer your vision told
Of desert highways streaming home
To the mountain of the Lord
Where nations sound a righteous song forever more

And on that mountain men will forge
From cuel implements of war
The tools to till and garden soil
The rose will bloom and faces shine with gladening oil

And it will surely come to pass
Justice will reign on earth at last
The wolf will lie down with the lamb
No beast destroy, no serpant strike the child’s hand

An God himself will choose the sign
A frightened woman in her time
Will bear a son and name him well
God with us! Oh come, oh come Emmanuel
