This is only Rend Collective’s second Christmas themed album; this time around their are some collaborations and original songs.
Ellie Holcomb brings accompanying vocals to Emmanuel, You’re One Of Us.
There’s a lot of timeless traditionalism (and sentimentalism) in Christmas songs, so this one is an interesting contrast as a reflection on pretty contemporary events in the light of Christmas hope.

I know
Emmanuel, you’re one of us
You left your throne to wear our scars
Though Christmas lights may lose their spark
And winter’s cold may break our hearts
Christmas means, Emmanuel you’re one of us
