Matthew West, “Unto Us”

Contemporary Christian singer/songwriter Matthew West has released Unto Us, the title track of his second full-length studio holiday album. Matthew has consistently been making great music, holiday or otherwise, since his debut with More, and Unto Us: A Christmas Collection is a fine addition to the discography of one of modern-day Contemporary Christian music’s finest male singers.

Soundwise, Unto Us leans more towards the Christian pop canon than traditional Christmas music, so don’t expect sleighbells and tambourines on this one. Rather, with its theme of God’s love and faithfulness through the birth of Christ, Unto Us is a powerful reminder that we are here to celebrate the birth of the real reason for the season. Still, Matthew says he wrote Unto Us thinking of the church, and so he wanted to send this song in that direction, making it a ripe choice for addition to your church’s praise and worship playlists or for special offering numbers this Christmas.

UNTO US Lyrics
Matthew West

Who are we that a King would trade heaven’s riches
For a stable and a manger low
Can it be Great I Am bending down to reach us
Morning star let this dark world know

Here is our promised One
Jesus our hope has come

Unto us, unto us a child is born
Unto us, unto us a Son is given
Glory to God in the highest
Wonderful Prince of Peace
Emmanuel has come to set captives free
With the angels we sing
Glory to God in the highest
He has brought this great love
Unto us

Who are we that a King would still walk among us
Knowing He would only live to die
Cross of shame, crown of thorns He still chose to carry
Beauty broken breathing us new life

Emmanuel (x3)
Love has come

God with us, You are God
You are God with us
