O Come O Come Emmanuel!

It was fascinating to be sitting in worship today, participating in Eucharist, remembering that I was on the top of Mt. Sinai with a bottle of Omar Khayyam red wine and flat bread at sunset.

The verse that sprung out at me in singing "O Come O Come Emmanuel" was this:

O come, o come, Thou Lord of might,
who to thy tribes on Sinai's height
in ancient times did give the law,
in cloud, and majesty, and awe.

Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel!
