Celebrate Immanuel's name

Representative Text

1. Celebrate Immanuel’s name,
the Prince of life and peace.
God with us, our lips proclaim,
our faithful hearts confess.
God is in our flesh revealed;
Heav’n and earth in Jesus join.
Mortal with Immortal filled,
and human with divine.

2. Fullness of the deity in
Jesus’ body dwells,
Dwells in all His saints and me
when God His Son reveals.
Father, manifest Thy Son;
breathe the true incarnate Word.
In our inmost souls make
known the presence of the Lord.

3. Let the Spirit of our Head
through every member flow;
By our Lord inhabited,
we then Immanuel know.
Then He doth His name express;
God in us we truly prove,
Find with all the life of grace
and all the power of love.
