Immanuel, Immanuel

About the Song

Church Music Contest: Anthem/Hymn Arrangement division–3rd place 1992 (SATB)

This song is part of the “Jesus, Once of Humble Birth” cantata.

Lyrics

Fair is the Child within the stable yonder
Softly He sleeps and fills the heart with wonder
Blessed gift of God, the Virgin guards His slumber
While angels delight to praise His holy name

Immanuel, Immanuel, the heavens tell of thy coming
Immanuel, Immanuel, this night we rejoice in thee

What light divine o’er Bethlehem is streaming?
Shadows of night in silent haste are fleeing
Rising o’er the world, the star of stars is gleaming
To hallow the place wherein the Babe is laid

Immanuel, Immanuel, the heavens tell of thy coming
Immanuel, Immanuel, this night we rejoice in thee

Fair is the Child! the Lord of all creation
Promise of life and Light unto all nations!
Wrapped in swaddling bands, the hope of our salvation
We kneel at his feet to worship Him our king

Immanuel, Immanuel, the heavens tell of thy coming
Immanuel, Immanuel, this night we rejoice in thee

    I sang this as a 15 year old in our ward choir 25 years ago. It still touches me and I have never forgotten how strong the spirit was when we sang it, both in practice and performance. A powerful testimony through music.
    Thank you!

    I love your music. I just finished practising ‘Immanuel, Immanuel’ which we will be singing for our Stake Carol Festival and I really felt the message of the words and music.
    I am thankful for your talent, so that I can share mine.
