Looking for song

I have this ear worm running through my head, but I can't remember the name of the song!  The opening lyrics are "Waiting, waiting, waiting for Emmanuel to appear."  I believe it could be part of a larger Advent "cantata" and has a calypso-style beat.  I'd like to be able to use it for my choir this Advent, so any direction would be appreciated!

Hi Martha
Is it Lloyd Larson's "Waiting and longing" (Lorenz)? It's from a Christmas cantata, "Bethlehem's Child."
if you click on the PDF symbol you can view a sample score, and you can also listen to an audio clip.
All best in your search

Thanks for the link, but that's not it.  I keep remembering this as a "stand alone" anthem with a really upbeat, jazzy rhythm.  Maybe I need to start taking more ginko biloba to improve my memory!  Thanks again, though.
