1 “God with us,” is the name of our King,
Earth, sea and sky shall break forth and sing
Praises to Him who salvation did bring.
Great is our King Immanuel.
Leaving His scepter, leaving His throne,
Born in a manger, dying alone,
God-man most holy, humble and lowly,
Great is Immanuel.

Refrain:
Great is Immanuel,
Who can His wonders tell?
Heaven and earth shall swell
With praise to Immanuel. [Refrain]

2 Great is Immanuel, praise His name,
Now and forever He is the same,
He bore our sin and He carried our shame,
Great is our King Immanuel.
Victor o’er sin o’er death and the grave,
Ever He lives, the Mighty to save,
Ready to cheer us, waiting to hear us,
Great is Immanuel. [Refrain]

3 Angelic beings sing of His fame,
And all the blood-washed honor His name,
Mighty to help us, “He knoweth our frame,”
Great is our King Immanuel.
Ruler of earth and heaven is He,
But in our hearts He promised to be,—
Bow down before Him, worship, adore Him!
Great is Immanuel. [Refrain]
