Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Emmanuel, Who Walked Among Us Here

Full Text

Emmanuel, who walked among us here
inspiring hope, removing doubt and fear,
your friends are gathered now, so come as you said.
Be known to us in cup and broken bread.
Refrain:
May we walk, may we walk with each other to life’s end,
not as servant nor as slave, but as a friend.

As once you walked the Galilean shore
and voiced a call your friends could not ignore,
draw us to follow in your footsteps today.
Good Teacher, lead us in Love's joyful way.
Refrain

Great Healer, as you walked each dusty lane
dispensing love to those who suffered pain,
grant us your gentle touch and soft-spoken phrase.
Make us your healing body now, always.
Refrain

Dear Savior, as you walked up Calvary's hill
to suffer there and feel death's awful chill,
when Love demands of us such great sacrifice.
give us your will and heart to pay the price.
Refrain

Lord, as you walked with friends Emmaus way,
and turned their mourning into joy that day,
in us such faith, such hope, such love now increase.
Dear Risen Friend, grant us new life and peace.
Refrain
