Immanuel (Michael Card)

One of the more modern Christmas songs I really enjoy and am encouraged by is Immanuel by Michael Card. Christmas is all about Jesus…Immanuel – God with us. This song explains the reality this brings. He is Deity, the Glory of the Nations and a Light for all to see. He is hope for all who will embrace Him. And, then, in the third stanza, we are asked…what will be our answer? Will we hear the call?

Immanuel (Michael Card)

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
That hope for all who will embrace
His warm reality

Our God is with us
And if God is with us
Who could stand against us
Our God is with us
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


So what will be your answer?
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
That could ever separate us
From the love of God in Christ
(chorus 2 x)

Watch here to see this song performed:

Will you hear the call?
