Prophecies from days of old were fulfilled in Him alone
He stepped down from His throne, and came to save us
God became flesh in the Son, fullness of the Holy One
He was despised and shunned, all to save us
What kind of King would come to die
But the mighty Lord of love who reigns on high, Emmanuel What kind of man could conquer death
But the One who came with power to rise again, Emmanuel God with us, God with us
True Light, He lived to shine radiance of the divine
He offered up His life, and died to save us
Worthy lamb for sin was slain, Mighty God is His name
Forever we will praise the One who saved us
He healed the sick and served the poor
Spoke the truth and nothing more
Like no one who came before
He was a teacher and a friend
He walked this life and never sinned
And His kingdom has no end
Jesus, God with us
