Song inspiration[edit]

One of the songs in the album is Emmanuel Has Come. It was written in the summer of 1995 by Don Moen. Speaking about why he wrote the song, Moen says,

I wrote "Emmanuel Has Come" to share that the real message in Christmas is in the word, Emmanuel, which means God with us. "More than just another story about a special time and place, Christmas is a time to lift a song of praise. For God is with us, and we celebrate the glory of His presence." I wanted to write a song that simply stated that "God with us, Emmanuel has come."
