God had been revealing Himself for centuries
before fully incarnating Himself in Jesus Christ.
This thought-provoking Advent hymn
exalts the Messiah foretold
throughout Genesis and Exodus.
Set to a familiar tune.
Christ the Father’s Word is spoken.
Know the great Creator’s heart!
See His wonders, taste His graces:
Life and light and holy art,
Love beyond what words can tell–
God made flesh, Immanuel!
Christ the warrior, mighty victor,
Comes to crush the serpent’s head;
Christ the rainbow, Christ the promise,
Christ the true, eternal bread,
Christ the Son so long awaited,
Blessed seed of Abraham,
Christ the wealth of wisdom’s treasure,
Christ the priest and Christ the lamb,
Hear His voice, and see His glory,
Trust His strong and holy hand.
God Himself now tents among us
As we near the promised land.
