Immanuel is His Name

Out across the frozen turf
There rings a joyous hymn
Behold, the king of heaven and earth
Is born in Bethlehem
And weary hearts are lifted up
As hope ignites a flame
Behold, behold the Son of God
Immanuel is His name

The song that first the shepherds heard
Still rings aloud today
And just as ancient hearts were stirred
It lives in the same way
Across the years to hearts of men
The message is the same
Behold the Babe of Bethlehem
Immanuel is His name

Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God
Jesus, Prince of peace
Out across this sin-cursed sod
This anthem will not cease
And just as in the days of yore
Humbly we acclaim
The gift in form of Christ the Lord
Immanuel is His name


…and they will call him Immanuel
Meaning- God with us. Matt.1:23
