Draw Nigh, Immanuel

Representative Text

1 Draw nigh to us, O God of hosts,
And fill us to the uttermost
With zeal to work for Thee today,
In Thine all-wise appointed way;
Reveal Thy will in us, and show
Thy hand divine, that we may know
We are Thy children, Thou our Guide
And hiding place, whate’er betide.

Draw nigh, draw nigh, Immanuel,
In grandeur and in majesty reveal Thyself today;
Rejoice, rejoice, O Israel,
Thy God Omnipotent shall reign with universal sway:
In grandeur and in majesty reveal Thyself today;
Thy God Omnipotent shall reign with universal sway.

2 Draw nigh to us, O Mighty One!
Our shelter be from sun to sun;
Our Alpha and Omega Thou
Before whom every knee shall bow;
Deliver us from every sin;
In us a mighty work begin;
Increase our faith, our strength renew,
Fit us a mighty work to do. [Refrain]

3 Draw nigh to us, Immanuel,
Thou Mighty God of Israel!
Once more from Sinai’s flaming height
Speak, that we may be led aright;
Almighty, everlasting
King of kings, with contrite hearts we sing,
The righteous majesty and love
Of Him who built the heav’ns above. [Refrain]
