Charlene and I wrote this Christmas song five years ago and it's sat around collecting dust as a BIAB midi file I didn't know quite what to do with. So finally here it is with all RT's. Merry Christmas.

GOD IS WITH US

Mary kissed her newborn baby
As she gently laid him on the hay
Shepherds on a nearby hillside
Knelt in wonder as the angels sang
Glory to God in the highest
On earth peace goodwill to men
The world rang in joyful harmony
Child of heaven Son of Man

Emmanuel God is with us
Sing praises to our King
Salvation has come to us
Tell the story the Christ child brings

Trumpets filled the air with music
As angels' voices heralded Him
Redemption so long awaited
Born in a manger in Bethlehem
Holy this child called Jesus
Born of spirit a spotless lamb
The world rang in perfect harmony
Child of heaven Son of Man

Emmanuel God is with us
Sing praises to our King
Salvation has come to us
Tell the story the Christ child brings

His name is Wonderful, Marvelous, Glorious,
Comforter, Counsellor, Prince of Peace,
All Mighty God

Hope you enjoy it.

Really pretty and well-written song!! I think the choice of RTs is great-very celebratory vibe. It would be great to hear a gospel choir in the background. Very cool stuff!! Take care. Greg

Thank you very much Greg.

Yeah, I wish I could have a real Gospel choir too. The Brooklyn Tabernacle is my favorite. If you like choirs and get a chance check this out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGl2DhiMINs

Hi Josie,

I agree with Greg and Charlie, this is beautiful. I really like the chorus. I found myself singing along with you without even realising I was doing so smile

Also, the clarity of the backing and your singing is superb. I don't know what you have done but the overall sound is top notch, very professional!

May Christmas be special for you and yours,
Noel

P.S. Thank you for the link for the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. I have not heard them before. Wow!!!!

I don't know if you've ever heard the Oslo Gospel Choir. If you're curious follow this link.

Josie, IMHO this is the latest Christmas Classic!

This was excellent and it's a keeper.

And another +1.

A good write. Terrific arrangement and mix. The vocal is nicely recorded (I like that reverb) and the harmonies are nice.

One of your best!

Thank you very much Noel. I'm using the Eventide UltraChannel and Ultraverb along with Ozone and the new delay from NI.

That Oslo Gospel Choir is great! I fell in love with big choirs back in the days of yore when I was chosen to represent my high school in the state choral festival. A famous guest conductor worked with us. It was one of those early life experiences with a lasting impression.

Charlene and I love that you were singing along.

Josie

Thank you very much Bob. Charlene took what I had and wrote the first draft of the lyrics drinking coffee at Starbucks.

Mario thank you very much. We had a hard time deciding whether to call it Emmanuel or God Is With Us.
