Come Divine Immanuel Come


Come, divine Emmanuel, come,
Take possession of Thy home;
Now Thy mercy’s wings expand,
Stretch throughout the happy land.

Carry on Thy victory,
Spread Thy rule from sea to sea;
Rescue all Thy ransomed race,
Save us, save us, Lord, by grace.

Take the purchase of Thy Blood,
Bring us to a pardoning God:
Give us eyes to see our day,
Hearts the Gospel truth to obey:

Ears to hear the Gospel sound,–
Grace doth more than sin abound;
God appeased, and man forgiven,
Peace on earth, and joy in heaven.

O that every soul might be
Perfectly subdued to Thee!
O that all in Thee might know
Everlasting life below!

Now Thy mercy’s wings expand,
Stretch throughout the happy land:
Take possession of Thy home;
Come, divine Emmanuel, come!
