When once I mourned a load of sin;
When conscience felt a wound within;
When all my works were thrown away;
When on my knees I knelt to pray,
Then, blissful hour, remembered well,
I learned Thy love, Immanuel.
When storms of sorrow toss my soul;
When waves of care around me roll;
When comforts sink, when joys shall flee;
When hopeless griefs shall gape for me,
One word the tempest's rage shall quell--
That word, Thy name, Immanuel.
When for the truth I suffer shame;
When foes pour scandal on my name;
When cruel taunts and jeers abound;
When "Bulls of Bashan" gird me round,
Secure within Thy tower I'll dwell--
That tower, Thy grace, Immanuel.
When hell enraged lifts up her roar;
When Satan stops my path before;
When fiends rejoice and wait my end;
When legioned hosts their arrows send,
Fear not, my soul, but hurl at hell
Thy battle-cry, Immanuel.
When down the hill of life I go;
When o'er my feet death's waters flow;
When in the deep'ning flood I sink;
When friends stand weeping on the brink,
I'll mingle with my last farewell
Thy lovely name, Immanuel.
When tears are banished from mine eye;
When fairer worlds than these are nigh;
When heaven shall fill my ravished sight;
When I shall bathe in sweet delight,
One joy all joys shall far excel,
To see Thy face, Immanuel.
~By Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) ~
A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son,
and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is,
God with us.
We know from Matthew 1:23 that the name Immanuel means
"God with us." And so Jesus is with every one who has received Him
as personal Savior and Lord. It is not enough to believe but one must
receive Christ as their OWN personal Savior. God, the Father, sent
the Son to be the Savior of the world and all who have received Him
have eternal life; so it truly doesn't matter what trials may come or
what trouble awaits the Christian-- the Lord is our Help and our Fortress!
We cry as did Spurgeon, "To see Thy face Immanuel!"

Lord and Savior, click here to read about the
