Francesca Battistelli, "Messiah"

Contemporary Christian singer Francesca Battistelli has released Messiah, her 2017 Christmas song and carrier single from her upcoming Greatest Hits: The First Ten Years compilation. Beautiful in its delivery, its highlight for me is when Fran mashes up the chorus of O Come All Ye Faithful into the bridge. A beautiful, surprising, lovely moment for all.

MESSIAH Lyrics
Long awaited precious promise
Son of God and son of man
Heaven’s glory in a manger
Has come to us in Bethlehem

Messiah
Messiah
Baby born to save us all
Messiah
Messiah
On our knees we fall

All we longed for, all we needed
Shining in this child’s eyes
Hope forever, death defeated
Because of this one holy night

Messiah
Messiah
Baby born to save us all
Messiah
Messiah
On our knees we fall

O come let us adore him
O come let us adore him
O come let us adore him
Christ the Lord

Long awaited precious promise
Coming back again

Messiah
Messiah
Baby born to save us all
Messiah
Messiah
On our knees we fall
On our knees we fall
