O Thou bless­èd gift from Hea­ven,
Words Thy worth can ne­ver tell!
Sweetest boon to mor­tals given,
Is our Lord Im­ma­nu­el.


Blessèd gift, O gift from Hea­ven,
Words Thy worth can ne­ver tell;
Sweetest boon to mor­tals giv­en,
Blessèd gift, Im­ma­nu­el.

Thro’ the long and trou­bled ages,
Heaven’s pre­cious pro­mise fell;
All the words of seers and sag­es,
Told of Christ Im­ma­nu­el.


God had loved, and God had spok­en,
God had loved, and loved so well;
Lo! He sent the dear­est to­ken,
Lo! He gave Im­ma­nu­el.
