E♭                B♭          F/B♭
O what a mystery: Jesus is here,
  E♭                      B♭
A light in our darkness shines.
E♭              Gm            F6        E♭2
O what a story: You came from heaven to earth.
Verse 2:
 E♭                   B♭             F/B♭
Away in a manger, the Word became flesh,
E♭                     B♭
Born just like one of us.
E♭                       Gm         F6         E♭2
O what a greatness, this picture of true humbleness.

Filled with grace and truth You've shown the mercy of the Father.

Immanuel, Immanuel, God with us.

Verse 3:
E♭                            B♭          F/B♭
You've tasted our sorrow, was nailed to a cross
  E♭                       B♭
Despised by the ones You made.
    E♭                              Gm            F6           E♭2
Yet death couldn't hold You: You've conquered the power of the grave.

O what a mystery
Jesus is here
A light in our darkness shines
O what a story
You came from heaven to earth

Away in a manger
The Word became flesh
Born, just like one of us
O, what a greatness
This picture of true humbleness

We have seen the glory
Of the One who lives forever
Jesus Christ the Savior of the world
Filled with grace and truth
You've shown the mercy of the Father
Immanuel, Immanuel, God with us


You've tasted our sorrow
Was nailed to a cross
Despised by the ones You made
Yet death couldn't hold You
You've conquered the power of the grave

We have seen the glory
Of the One who lives forever
Jesus Christ the Savior of the world
Filled with grace and truth
You've shown the mercy of the Father
Immanuel, Immanuel, God with us


You came to save the world
You came to save the world
God with us
