Lyrics

O Come Immanuel

Written By: Nicholas Tuohy

© 2006 Nicholas Tuohy

Verse 1
Just a little baby, so tender and mild
But the hopes of this world, rest on this child
The darkness flees, for the light has come
God has sent, His only Son

Pre Chorus
Those walking in darkness have seen a great Light
For the Hope of al Ages, has been born tonight

Chorus
O come O come Immanuel, God with us to stay
O come O come Immanuel, and bring us peace we pray

Verse 2
There’s too much suffering, there’s too much pain
For we keep on making, the same mistakes
Lift your eyes to His star above
Let your heart be filled with love (to pre chorus)

Bridge
We pray for the children the sad and the broken
For those who are searching for the way
So let the cries of the hopeless
Find hope now in Jesus
As we look to the dawn of a new day, we pray (to chorus)

Joseph’s Song

Verse 1:
How can this be?
Why is this happening to me?
Can it be true?
God sent His angel to you?

It seems such a fanciful story
How my Mary conceived
I’m caught in between shame and glory
O God, help me believe

Chorus 1:
That this child in my arms is your gift to the world
The one who will set nations free
Though he’s helpless and small
he will stand above all
And though I carry him now
One day he will carry us all.

Verse 2:
It seems like the whole town is talking
Some laugh while others believe
But shepherds and wise men adore him
They bring gifts and fall to their knees

The star in the sky makes me wonder why
You chose someone like me
I’m a simple with unclean hands
O God I’m not worthy; to hold

Chorus 2:
This child in my arms who’s your gift to the world
The One who will set nations free
Though he’s helpless and small
He will stand above all
And though I carry him now
One day he will carry us all.

Bridge:
The Prophets foretold what His future would hold
He will die for the sins of the world
Wonderful Counsellor, The Prince of Peace, Mighty God
But for now.

Chorus 3:
He’s just a child in my arms who’s your gift to the world
The One who will set nations free
Though he’s helpless and small
He will stand above all
And though I carry him now
One day he will carry us all.

This child in my arms is your gift to the world
The One who will set nations free
Though he’s helpless and small
He will stand above all
And though I carry him now
Gently holding him now
And though I carry him now
One day he will carry us all.

Say a Prayer

Say a prayer for you- © Nicholas Tuohy 2007

Verse 1
I wish that I could say
A word to take all your pain away
But my words just won’t do

For when it feels like your heat is dying
Your world is lost and you’re tired from crying
I will say a prayer for you

Chorus
I’ll lift you up
I’ll hold you in my heart
For heaven knows the tears your cried
And just how precious you really are
Of all the things I could give to you
I’m believing that, this prayer will get through
So I say a prayer for you

Verse 2
So lift up your tear-stained face
And see the rainbow of His love and grace
Believe, and faith will get you through

There’s always hope for a new tomorrow
Where fear is gone and there’s no more sorrow
Just fly as I say this prayer for you.

To chorus

Bridge/finish
Say a prayer, say prayer for you
Cause I believe it’s true

Surrounded

Written By: Nicholas Tuohy

Verse 1
Be still do not fear
Even though it feels like you’re alone
Listen closely you'll hear
Songs of love coming from His throne

Chorus
I'm surrounded and
You’re surrounded
The nail-pierced hands of love
Are held out to you
I'm surrounded and I
Stand astounded
You can run into your Father’s arms
His love will carry you through

Verse 2
O my soul why so down?
Put your hope in God and truly live
Lift your eyes up off the ground
Take courage, stand firm and just believe

Chorus:
I'm surrounded and
You’re surrounded
The nail-pierced hands of love
Are held out to you
I'm surrounded and I
Stand astounded
You can run into your Father’s arms
His love will carry you through

Bridge:
Jesus I hunger and I thirst or you
The earth has nothing I desire
No nothing but you

His love will carry you through (repeat)
