Hymn/Song Information

O come O come Emmanuel And ransom




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

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee,
O Israel.



O come, Thou Wisdom
from on high,
Who orderest all things mightily;
To us the path of knowledge show,
And teach us in her ways to go.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee,
O Israel.



O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satanís tyranny;
From depths of hell Thy people save,
And give them victory over the grave.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee,
O Israel.



O come, Thou Day-spring,
come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And deathís dark shadows put to flight.

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.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee,
O Israel.



O come, O come,
great Lord of might,
Who to Thy tribes on Sinaiís height
In ancient times once gave the law
In cloud and majesty and awe.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee,
O Israel.



O come, Thou Root of Jesseís tree,
An ensign of Thy people be;
Before Thee rulers silent fall;
All peoples on Thy mercy call.

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.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee,
O Israel.

O come, O come,
thou Lord of might,
Who to Thy tribes on Sinaiís height
In ancient times once gave the law
In cloud and majesty and awe.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee,
O Israel.
