Our God, Emmanuel

(D)             G

He took the lowest place

                                Am7(G)

Born where there was no space

                G                               Am7(G)  D

But safely cradled in His mother’s arms

                    G

She held Him closely then

                      Am7(G)

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


The Son of God living here with us, Emmanuel

Became a man, see Him serving there

Our God, Emmanuel!



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!


The Son of God living here with us, Emmanuel

Became a man, see Him dying there

Our God, Emmanuel!



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!’


The Son of God living here with us, Emmanuel

Became a man, see Him reigning now

Our God, Our God, Emmanuel!
