O COME, O COME, EMMANUEL


O come, O come, Emmanuel

 

O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.

Chorus
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!


O come, thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyranny;
From depths of hell Thy people save
And give them victory o'er the grave.

Chorus
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!


O come, thou Dayspring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death's dark shadows put to flight.

Chorus
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!


O come, thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.

Chorus
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!


O come, O come, Thou Lord of Might
Who to Thy tribes, on Sinai's height,
In ancient times didst give the law,
In cloud and majesty and awe.

Chorus
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!


O come, Thou Wisdom from on high,
And order all things, far and nigh;
To us the path of knowledge show,
And cause us in her ways to go.

Chorus
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!


O come, Desire of nations, bind
In one the hearts of all mankind;
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease,
And be Thyself our King of peace.

Chorus
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!
