God with us, O glorious name, Let it shine in endless fame

Full Text

1 God with us! Oh glorious name!
Let it shine in endless fame:
God and man in Christ unite;
Oh mysterious depth and height!

Refrain:
God with us! God with us!
Oh, mysterious depth and height!
God with us! God with us!
God and man in Christ unite.

2 God with us! but tainted not
With the first transgressor’s blot;
Yet he did our sins sustain,
Bear the curse, the grief, the pain. [Refrain]

3 God with us! Oh wondrous grace!
Let us see him face to face;
That we may Immanuel sing,
Our Redeemer, God and King. [Refrain]
