Merry Christmas!

Peace came to earth at last that chosen night, 
When angels clove the sky with song and light 
And God embodied love and sheathed his might-
Who could but gasp; Immanuel!
Who could but sing; Immanuel!

And who could be the same for having held
The infant in their arms and later felt
The wounded hands and side, all doubts dispelled-
Who could be sigh; Immanuel!
Who could but shout; Immanuel!

You show the Father none has ever seen,
In flesh and blood you bore our grief and pain,
In bread and wine you visit us again-
Who could but see; Immanuel!
Who could but thrill; Immanuel!

How else could I have known you, O my God!
How else could I have loved you, O my God!
How else could I embrace you, O my God!
Who could but pray; Immanuel!
Who could but praise; Immanuel!

CW Supplement: Hymn 707

We pray you have a wonderful Christmas, as you celebrate your Savior's birth!
