Representative Text

1 Emmanuel is God with me,

Prepares for me a seat in heav'n,
And keeps my joy secure.

3 In him accepted; and, as him,
Receiv'd in realms above;
In him I triumph, soar, and swim
In everlasting love.

4 All my religion, and my life,
Art thou, my Lamb, my God;
I'm fix'd, from hence my future strife
Shall be, to praise thy blood.
