Emmanuel (a composition)

Spent most of the day at work on this song, there's lyrics too... enjoy!

Thanks to Samuel for helping out with the vocals.


Instrumental Version



Lyrics
The lyrics are taken from Revelation 21 and 22, which talks about God coming back to be with us. While 'Emmanuel' (God with us) is usually taken to refer to the birth of Christ, or that God is constantly in our hearts, 'Emmanuel' in this song talks about the 2nd coming of Christ.

Verse:
Behold the city of God
Where the light never fades,
The light never fades.

Behold the trees of Life,
Where the nations will heal,
The nations will heal.

You’re the First,
The Last, Beginning and End.
You’re the Bright Morning Star.

Your name,
Will be written on our heads.
You will wipe every tear

Chords: G D Em C (x4)

Pre-Chorus
Earth & sky flees before you.
Nations kneel, bow, before you.

Chords: C D C D

Chorus:
Emmanuel, Emmanuel
Lord You are, close to us.
Emmanuel, Emmanuel
Lord You make, all things new.

Chords: G D Em C (x2)

Instrumental:
C D C D (x2)

How did you do the drums? It doesn't sound like an real drummer. Although it sounds very good. I would like to make some variations on the drumming parts. If it's ok with you. Can you send me the guitar only? Ty.
