I’ve enjoyed the recordings of trio Ordinary Time for years.
Some tracks from their earliest recording have been re-recorded with fuller instrumental backing and released as an EP.
Come To Us, Emmanuel, was originally on their debut album In The Town Of David.

The lyrics:

Come to us, Immanuel
We wait for thee with bated breath
And hope filled hearts
And anxious minds
Longing to see your face
And worship at your feet
Isaiah’s vision didst unfold
When you descended into this world
to bring good news
and set the prisoners free
you set aside eternity
so that we might live
so come to us Imannuel
we live in hope of your return
to bring new life
to this old world
to end all wars and to heal all hearts
and to reign forevermore
to reign forevermore
