lyrics

The light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it
the light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not understand it
the light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not put it out (can't put it out)

Emmanuel, Emmanuel, you came to bring all the things together
and you came to bring, came to bring
a sword, a sword, a sword
between truth and lies, truth and lies
don't run for cover now when the light has come
you made it so simple, so simple: love God and others, love God and others
you made it so simple now, simple now
love God and others
it's so simple, why we take and we make it so complicated?

Emmanuel, Emmanuel you came to bring your light, your light
and men loved darkness, loved darkness, why, we'll never know
you came to bring your light, you came to bring your freedom,
but they'd rather buy, rather buy trinkets and toys
they'd rather buy, rather buy love on the computer
than come to the Fountain of Love

Emmanuel, you flow, you flow in every tree, every flower, every man, and woman, and baby
Man, look around, look around Emmanuel is here today, today
hey, look around, look around Emmanuel is here, here with you
