1 See! the Monarch of monarchs comes in majesty!
Let us bow down and worship Him who doeth all things well;
He leads the nations out of sin and causes foes to flee;
All hail, our King Immanuel!

Refrain:
O honor His name forever for what His grace has done;
His mighty love in every heart should dwell,
For He is the world’s Redeemer, Jehovah’s only Son!
All hail, our King Immanuel!
All hail, our King Immanuel!

2 Like the waves of the ocean rolls His praise today,
for His wonderful love has helped so many to excel;
He sends the captives, free from chains, all singing on their way:
“All hail our King Immanuel!” [Refrain]

3 O the joy that will thrill us some glad day on high,
When we see Him in glory, where celestial praises swell;
Where cherubim and seraphim all join us when we cry:
“All hail our King Immanuel!” [Refrain]
