OFFERTORY

Immanuel 

A sign shall be given
A virgin will conceive
A human baby bearing undiminished Deity
The glory of the nations
A light for all to see
And hope for all who will embrace
His warm reality

Immanuel
Our God is with us
(And) if God is with us
Who could stand against us
Our God is with us Immanuel

For all those who live
In the shadow of death
A glorious light has dawned
For all those who stumble
In the darkness
Behold Your light has come

Immanuel
Our God is with us
(And) if God is with us
Who could stand against us
Our God is with us Immanuel

So what shall be your answer
Oh will you hear the call
Of Him who did not spare His Son
But gave Him for us all
On earth there is no power
There is no depth or height
Could ever separate us
From the love of God in Christ

Immanuel
Our God is with us
(And) if God is with us
Who could stand against us
Our God is with us Immanuel

POSTLUDE

How Great Our Joy

While by my sheep, I watched at nightGlad tiding brought an angel bright
How great our joy
(Great our joy)
Joy, joy, joy
(Joy, joy, joy)
Praise we the Lord in Heaven on high

“For you,” he said, “this blessed mornIn Bethlehem a child is born.”
How great our joy
(Great our joy)
Joy, joy, joy
(Joy, joy, joy)
Praise we the Lord in Heaven on high

“Go where he lies within a stallThe infant Redeemer of us all.”
How great our joy
(Great our joy)
Joy, joy, joy
(Joy, joy, joy)
Praise we the Lord in Heaven on high

There in the stall he sleeping lay;There by his side I longed to stay.
How great our joy
(Great our joy)
Joy, joy, joy
(Joy, joy, joy)
Praise we the Lord in Heaven on high

Sweetly he gazed into my face:I in his hands my heart did place
How great our joy
(Great our joy)
Joy, joy, joy
(Joy, joy, joy)
Praise we the Lord in Heaven on high

Gently I kissed his tiny feet,Which to my lips were honey-sweet.
How great our joy
(Great our joy)
Joy, joy, joy
(Joy, joy, joy)
Praise we the Lord in Heaven on high

Then to my home I made my way:Yet still that Child with me did stay
How great our joy
(Great our joy)
Joy, joy, joy
(Joy, joy, joy)
Praise we the Lord in Heaven on high

Within my arms that Child did rest:Oh! how my heart with love was blest.
How great our joy
(Great our joy)
Joy, joy, joy
(Joy, joy, joy)
Praise we the Lord in Heaven on high

Close shall I guard this darling Boy,Thus shall my heart be filled with joy.
How great our joy
(Great our joy)
Joy, joy, joy
(Joy, joy, joy)
Praise we the Lord in Heaven on high
