Celebrate Immanuel's name
'Celebrate Immanuel's name' is a hymn by Charles Wesley. The first of its three stanzas was published on p126 of Short hymns on select passages of the Holy Scriptures, vol. 2 (Bristol: 1762): the remainder of the hymn was written in Charles Wesley's MS volume of hymns on the Gospel of St. Matthew (finished 1766). The volume was left unpublished at Charles' death in 1788 but selected items from it were published by John Wesley in the Arminian Magazine, including this hymn in 1789.
The hymn was subsequently included as no. 603 in the Collection of Hymns for the Use of the People called Methodists.
