lyrics

O, Immanuel
O, Immanuel
So far from home
So far to go
O, Immanuel
O, Immanuel

From the banks of Jordan
South of Beth Shean
Through Galilee, Judea
On to Bethlehem

The counsel of the Magi
Led them to the shore
From there they fled to Egypt
A hundred miles or more

I'll be home for Christmas
I'll be home for Christmas

From Cairo to Benghazi
Mosul to Istanbul
Whichever way they travelled
The inn was always full

Sicily emerges
Through lemon-scented groves
A thousand orange jackets
Like petals, in the cove

I'll be home for Christmas
I'll be home for Christmas
I'll be home for Christmas
I'll be home for Christmas
