D. R. Van Sic­kle, 1910, alt. Van Sic­kle, a non­be­liev­er, wrote the song to prove that one doesn’t have to be a Chris­tian to write a Chris­tian song. How­ev­er, God’s great pa­tience turned the ta­bles on him. Years la­ter, Van Sic­kle was sit­ting in a ser­vice where a choir sang his hymn. He came un­der con­vic­tion and gave his heart to Christ!

Charles H. Ga­bri­el, 1910 (🔊 pdf nwc). The re­frain can be a chal­lenge to sing due to its speed and length, but the hymn works well ev­en with­out a cho­rus.

All hail to Thee, Immanuel,
We cast our crowns before Thee;
Let every heart obey Thy will,
And every voice adore Thee.
In praise to Thee, our Savior King,
The vibrant chords of Heaven ring,
And echo back the mighty strain:
All hail! All hail! All hail Immanuel!

Refrain

Hail to the King we love so well!
Immanuel! Immanuel!
Hail to the King we love so well!
Immanuel! Immanuel!
Glory and honor and majesty,
Wisdom and power be unto Thee,
Now and evermore!
Hail to the King we love so well!
Immanuel! Immanuel!
Hail to the King we love so well!
Immanuel! Immanuel!
King of kings and Lord of lords,
All hail, Immanuel!

All hail to Thee, Immanuel,
The ransomed hosts surround Thee;
And earthly monarchs clamor forth
Their sovereign King to crown Thee.
While those redeemed in ages gone,
Assembled round the great white throne,
Break forth into immortal song:
All hail! All hail! All hail Immanuel!

Refrain

All hail to Thee, Immanuel,
Our risen King and Savior!
Thy foes are vanquished, and Thou art
Omnipotent forever.
Death, sin and hell no longer reign,
And Satan’s pow’r is burst in twain;
Eternal glory to Thy name:
All hail! All hail! All hail Immanuel!
