2933. Immanuel, We Sing Thy Praise

1. Immanuel, we sing Thy praise;
Thou Prince of Life, Thou fount of grace,
With all Thy saints, Thee, Lord, we sing;
Praise, honor, thanks, to Thee we bring.

2. E’er since the world began to be,
How many a heart hath longed for Thee!
And Thou, O long expected guest,
Hast come at last to make us blest!

3. Now art Thou here: we know Thee now:
In lowly manger liest Thou:
A child, yet makest all things great;
Poor, yet the earth Thy robe of state.

4. Now fearlessly I come to Thee:
From sin and grief O set me free!
Turn wrath away, dread death destroy,
And turn my sorrow into joy.

5. Thou art my head, my Lord divine:
I am Thy member, wholly Thine;
And by Thy Spirit’s gracious power
Will seek to serve Thee evermore.
