Emmanuel, God with Us

“God with us” in this world of sin,
This life of weakness and of woe:
His love, His power and His strength
With us, wherever we may go,
Since Jesus came to earth to dwell
And be for aye Emmanuel.

No weary days, no starless nights,
No sorrow deep, no trial sore,
But we can feel His presence near,
“God with us”, now and evermore;
Since He hath come to earth to dwell
Whose name is still Emmanuel.

Annie Johnson Flint.
