Immanuel, Immanuel (DeFord)


Immanuel, Immanuel (DeFord)

Solos to Sing, Submitted Music (1992-1997)

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.

 

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.
