Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Did our Immanuel die for us

Did our Immanuel die for us

Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Did our Immanuel die for us,
To save such poor rebellious men?
Did he display his pity thus,
That we might come to God again?

2 All human language wants a name,
For this unfathomed wondrous love:
This pure immortal fervent flame,
Sprang only from the God above.

3 What can we add? Our speech is faint;
We sink beneath the ponderous load:
This love no eloquence can paint;
'Tis grand! 'tis worthy of a God.

4 O'erwhelmed with this abyss of love,
We stand astonished at the grace,
That brought the Savior from above,
To die for all the fallen race!

5 Did our Immanuel die for us?
What more can be by sounds expressed?
For sinners Christ was made a curse;
Eternity must tell the rest.
