Behold Emmanuel in judgment hall
As sinful men condemn the Lord of all
What trial starts with the verdict in place?
Behold Emmanuel struck in the face.

Behold, behold Emmanuel and see,
He stumbles up the Way of Suffering.
He's crushed beneath the weight of our sin.
Behold, Emmanuel stumbles again.

Behold Emmanuel at Calvary
A bleeding brow, each breath is agony.
An angry mob, two thieves by His side,
Behold Emmanuel, the crucified.

Behold, behold Emmanuel has come to thee, O Israel.

All my favorite hymns. Most of them are from before the Reformation.
