Immanuel, We Bless Your Name   Don Fortner

(Tune: It Came Upon A Midnight Clear #90 CMD)


Immanuel, we bless Your name,

Our Savior, God, and King!

Our God a Man like us became

That He might mercy bring:

The myst'ry we cannot explain -

How God became a Man!

But His great praise we can proclaim:

Christ is both God and Man!


God could not suffer, bleed, and die

To put away man's sin;

And man could never satisfy

The law's demand for sin:

But Christ, the God-Man, bled and died,

Instead of His elect;

His blood God's law has satisfied

And fully paid our debt.


The merit of Christ's righteousness,

Imputed now to us,

Makes us complete in holiness,

In Christ God accepts us!

Immanuel - God come to save

The people of His choice:

Immanuel - God who has saved!

Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice!
