Joy's Awesome Alloy; Emmanuel, 'God With Us'

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: 
The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.


What joy we find through Jesus
Too great to fully tell
Abiding Hope; ‘God with us’
 What love! Emmanuel

God with us and God for us
In Him love will not fail
Though the world wars against us
God’s promise will prevail

Never alone; His Spirit
To comfort, guide, reprove
And all who humbly hear it
Find peace and joy and love

What joy for all believers
Nothing can take the place
Of Hope we find in Jesus
Through love’s redeeming grace

Then sing! None can replace Him
Let earth and heaven blend
As hearts and voices praise Him
In worship without end
