Immanuel, our God and Lord

Full Text

1 Immanuel! Our God and Lord,
Uphold us by Thy mighty Word;
In all that we may say or do,
Let us to Thee be ever true.

2 Immanuel! Our Savior dear,
O teach us God to love and fear,
That we may truly learn Thy way
And grow in strength from day to day.

3 Immanuel! O Holy Ghost,
Adored by all the heav'nly host,
Thyself impart and grant us light
To walk the path of truth and right.

4 Immanuel! O God of grace,
In blessing turn to us Thy face;
Then shall our lips Thy name adore,
O triune God, for evermore.
