My Savior’s Name

May the heavenly hosts all envy me
Because of the song I sing so free
Redeeming  love I shall proclaim
Emmanuel is my savior’s name

God is with us every one
Who will receive the blessed son
His way  His path and His time
Is all of His and none of mine

For if the promise you receive
You are transformed as you believe
Believing you are made to be
One who with His will  you agree.

Changed transformed and reconciled
O be conformed to this Holy child
To see His image shine in you
Born in a heart made clean and new

The reason he came’s for the sake of His name
And to be our Emmanuel
For God so loved the word that he gave his only son
Now our God is for us
So we’ll join the chorus
To sing of the great things He’s done.

For though he was equal with God
Equality he did not grasp
He put off his glory
To tell us this story
That fulfills more than we know to ask.

For when he put on human flesh
And came to earth to dwell
He has made us a way
On that first christmas day
So we’ll go – all the world to tell
