Immanuel

Who is this

that arrives in silence

heralds in the dawn?

The unseen One

who reveals himself

at every little step.

Who is this

that stays behind the scenes

with ever watchful eyes?

The Wonderful one

who steadies faltering steps

in every fleeting breath.

Who is this

that heralds in peace

when chaos raise their heads?

The Prince of peace

who empties himself

to fill our every need.

Who is this

that appears in heavenly robes

all pleasures laid aside?

The eternal Son

His crown laid down

on the cross to die.

Who is this
who waits outside
till I let Him in?

Immanuel
the one who stays
within, humbly to abide.
