Out of the depths Did we cry out to you, Out of the depths Did you answer us. What cure for our hopelessness But endless hope? What help for our sin But innocence? Love made the way, Straight through the desert, Laid down the gift in a manger. Out of the depths Did we cry out to you And you gave to us A Savior. Chorus: Oh come, come Emmanuel, Come ransom us, Your people, Israel. Every shadow cowered in fear, All that was darkness receded. Light from light covered us; We could not hide. Vision was all we had needed. No longer slaves To dust and ashes, Now we had seen something greater: Every shadow erased by the star And the coming of A Savior. Chorus: Oh come, come Emmanuel, Come ransom us, Your people, Israel. Oh Come, come Emmanuel, Come and set us free, Your people, Israel. Out of the depths And the aching of time Two thousand years was so long ago. How we lose heart, How dim seems the light Longing for heaven on earth below. Sweet lamb of God, gently remind us In every terror and danger Who was, and is, And is still to come; Who will ever be Our Savior. For unto us a child is come And he will ever be our Savior.
