Our God, Emmanuel
He took the lowest place
Born where there was no space
G Am7(G) D
But safely cradled in His mother’s arms
She held Him closely then
No harm would come to Him
G Am7(G) D
He’d sleep in peace that night, quiet and calm
G D B7 C A Am D
The Son of God living here with us, Emmanuel
G D B7 C A
Became a man, see Him lying there
Am D G
Our God, Emmanuel!
He helped the poor and lame
Made blind men see again
He healed the broken hearts and troubled minds
Taught like no other could
And lived the way we should
A shepherd reaching out to seek and find
Became a man, see Him serving there
He died in agony
Suffering for you and me
Giving His life for us, a sacrifice
‘Forgive them’ was His prayer
As He hung dying there
‘Finished’ -a way was made to give us life!
Became a man, see Him dying there
He rose in victory
An empty tomb we see
The stone now rolled away, He lives again!
‘Look at my hands and side –
You know now it is I!
Those who will trust in me will live again!’
Became a man, see Him reigning now
Our God, Our God, Emmanuel!
