From the recording In the Midst of the Assembly


Immanuel, God with Us

God incarnate, can it be?
Ponder now the mystery:
He, the fount of eternal life,
Must drink the cup of mortality.
Immanuel, God with us.

Shepherds wonder at the scene:
Swaddling robes for deity;
Heaven's throne now a bed of straw
Within these borrowed stable walls.
Immanuel, God with us.

God Creator, now created,
Lord of all in infancy.
Hands that lighted the evening stars
Reach out for comfort in Mary's arms.
Immanuel, God with us,
Our God with us.
