Our Lord, Emmanuel
By June Stein
We praise You Lord, Emmanuel
Your peoples’ cry You hear,
Wherever we may be on earth
Your Presence still is near!
Your Mercy, Love and Grace for us
Give peace that floods our soul,
For You are with us in all things
Our every need You know.
It is not worldly things we need
All these will soon be gone,
There’s nothing else but You, Dear Lord
For You are our life’s song!
Without You with us every day
This world would all be bare,
There is no hope apart from You
You keep us in Your care.
You gave Your life that we might live
Removed our debt of sin,
Demolished it with Your own blood
In You, new life begins!
Our life with You will never end
Each day we live anew,
You opened Heaven’s gate for us
Our life we pledge to You.
‘Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and His name
shall be called Emmanuel’ (which means, “God with us”)
‘For this is My blood of the covenant,
which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.’
