To Be Emmanuel

So many live as captives to fear,
In a broken world that needs to hear,
That God is with them and God is near,
He is Emmanuel.

For this world is dying we can see its decay,
But we can change someone’s night to day,
All it takes is for us to be bold and say,
He is Emmanuel.

For God so loved the world and mankind,
That He came down from heaven to seek, save and find,
And now God and man are forever entwined,
He is Emmanuel.

For He died, rose again and now reigns on high,
Believe even if you can’t understand why,
God would suffer the cross and for mankind would die,
To be Emmanuel.
