Hope is Here
We are excited to release our first Christmas single, ‘Hope is Here’, written in Autumn 2021 for our carol services.

‘Hope is Here’ was written by three of our musicians at King’s – Ysabel Bain (who also sings on the recording), Sarah Téibo and Tom Endersby.

It’s available below as a free download or you can find it on Spotify and Apple Music now.

We hope and pray it brings hope to people this Christmas.

So enjoy! And please share it with friends and family.

For every heart in mourning, there is a new hope dawning.
Emmanuel, our Hope is here.

Hope is Here

Verse 1

Hear a cry in the night
From the dark, see a light has come
Peace on Earth, hope has dawned
Christ is born, here in Bethlehem

Verse 2

See the child, lying there
Precious Son, born to save the world
He is called, Prince of Peace
Mighty God, Wonderful Counsellor

Chorus 1

We see the star brightly shining
There is a new hope arising
We join the angels rejoicing
Emmanuel, our Hope is here

Verse 3

See the light breaking through
He has come, with healing in His wings
All the Earth, see your King
Join with heaven, come and worship Him

Chorus 2

The Father’s love freely given
A precious gift sent from heaven
So come and let us adore Him
Emmanuel, our Hope is here


We see the light is breaking
Now watch our joy awaken
Emmanuel, our Hope is here

For those who walk in darkness
His light has come to free us
Emmanuel, our Hope is here

For every heart in mourning
There is a new hope dawning
Emmanuel, our Hope is here

The prophecy fulfilling
This is the King of heaven
Emmanuel, our Hope is here
