Mercyme – God With Us lyrics

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.

    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.

    I can't help but sing praises to god, for he has freed me from the chains of death. My heart wells up in humility, and thankfulness, and awe of him. He resides in my heart, not because of anything I did or deserve, but because of his mercy and grace I am saved! I am made new with his strength. I can't contain my love for him, my heart is overwhelmed in gratefulness and my desire to praise and gloryify him.
