1 Immanuel, to Thee we sing,
Thou Prince of Life, our Lord and King,
Thou Morning Star, Thou Fount of Grace,
Thou Savior of our fallen race.
2 Men looked for Thee in days of yore,
To rescue them from perils sore,
And now, O long-expected Guest,
Thou hast appeared to make us blest.
3 Thou art descended from on high,
Dost in a humble manger lie,
An infant, yet supremely great,
Poor, lowly, yet of high estate.
4 With eyes of faith we look on Thee,
Assured that Thou wilt set us free
From sin and guilt, from grief and woe,
From all our suff'rings here below.
5 God's holy wrath hast Thou appeased,
The gates of hell Thy hand hath seized,
The king of terrors Thou hast slain,
And all for our eternal gain.
6 Thou art our Head, O grant that we
Thy faithful members, Lord, may be;
Let Thy good Spirit rule our will,
That we Thy statutes may fulfill.
7 Immanuel, to Thee, our King,
The tributes of our praise we bring;
O let us here Thy name adore
And laud Thee there for evermore.
