Can it be
The voice that said
‘Let there be light’
Is heard within a newborn cry
The mystery of God with us, God with us

Can it be
The King of all eternity
Has walked the ground beneath our feet
The Holy One as one of us, one of us

Light and life in the darkness
The greatest grace of all

Emmanuel, Emmanuel
Was ever there a name so wonderful
God among us now
We are not alone
Forever sing the name of Emmanuel

Can it be
Almighty God who never sleeps
Is resting here in perfect peace
The Holy One as one of us, one of us

Light and life in the darkness
The greatest grace of all

The same blood, the same flesh
One of us
The same skin, the same breath
One of us
The same dust and dirt
The same trials and hurts
One of us

Jesus, Son of man
Jesus, Son of God
Forever sing the name of Emmanuel
