Angels Are Singing (Emmanuel Now 5 Verses) – Piano and SATB or Woodwind and Strings


1. Angels are singing high up in heaven,
Church bells are ringing on earth down below.
The world’s celebrating the birth of the Christ-child.
Emmanuel, Emmanuel, Emmanuel now,
His glory does show.

2. Shepherds in fields were watching and waiting.
God’s angel singing, and all heavens ring.
He told them how God’s light would banish the darkness.
Emmanuel, Emmanuel, Emmanuel now,
All worship the king!

3. Bright star is shining high in the night sky.
Stopped o’er the stable where Jesus, He lay.
The babe in the manger, God’s love and God’s glory.
Emmanuel, Emmanuel, Emmanuel now,
All fol-low the star.

4. Softly and gently, Mary is singing,
We kneel to praise Him with Kings from afar.
The oxen are lowing, as all join in worship.
Emmanuel, Emmanuel, Emmanuel now,
Asleep in the hay.

5. Lifting our voices, we sing out praises
With heav’nly choirs our worship we bring.
We tell the great story of Jesus the Saviour.
Emmanuel, Emmanuel, Emmanuel now,
We worship our King!

Emmanuel, Emmanuel Emmanuel, Emmanuel now,
We worship our King!
