Who are we--- that You would be mindful of us?
What do You see--- that's worth looking our way?
We are free--- in ways that we never should be.
Sweet release--- from the grip of these chains.

Like hinges straining from the weight,
My heart no longer can keep from singing.

All that is within me cries
For You alone be glorified:
Emmanuel, God with us.

My heart sings a brand new song.
The debt is paid, these chains are gone.
Emmanuel, God with us.

Lord, You know--- our hearts don't deserve Your glory;
Still You show--- a love we cannot afford.

Like hinges straining from the weight,
My heart no longer can keep from singing.

All that is within me cries
For You alone be glorified:
Emmanuel, God with us.

My heart sings a brand new song.
The debt is paid, these chains are gone.
Emmanuel, God with us.

Such a tiny offering
Compared to Calvary;
Nevertheless,
We lay it at Your feet.

Such a tiny offering
Compared to Calvary;
Nevertheless,
We lay this at Your feet.

All that is within me cries
For You alone be glorified:
Emmanuel, God with us.

My heart sings a brand new song.
My debt is paid, these chains are gone.
Emmanuel, God with us.

    My heart nearly bursts when i sing this song. It's a great song when your alone in the car at about 1000 decebels. it reminds me of the greatness of God and how freely he gives His undeserved love to me!

    Es miserablemente pequeño lo que puedo ofrecerte en comparación con el calvario que sufriste por mi....
    Pero aún así lo rindo a tus pies.

    Given salvation though we are undeserving... I am finally accepting of this truly great gift, though i what i give in return is nothing in comparison!

    That no matter what -- no matter if we are good or bad, jesus christ paid for us, wholly, with nothing lacking. If we believe, god graciously reaches down and pulls us up out of the pit to be with him. And we are saved to have everlasting life with him. Jesus christ is lord.

    God with us means that god, in the form of jesus, left heaven to walk with us and make a way for us to always be with us through the cross (if we accept what he did and allow him to be our savior). To follow up, he sent the holy spirit so that he could continue to be with us always while on earth, once he left earth in human form. Therefore, when he came to earth as a baby, he was known as emmanuel which means god with us. :-) it began and continues eternally. See matthew 1:23
