O come O come Emmanuel Redeem thy




O come, O come. Emmanuel!
Redeem thy captive Israel,
That into exile drear is gone
Far from the face of God's dear Son.

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



O come, thou Wisdom from on high!
Who madest all in earth and sky,
Creating man from dust and clay:
To us reveal salvation's way.

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



O come, O come, Adonai,
Who in thy glorious majesty
From Sinai's mountain, clothed with awe.
Gavest thy folk the ancient law.

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



O come, thou Root of Jesse! draw
The quarry from the lion's claw;
From those dread caverns of the grave,
From nether hell, thy people save.

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



O come, thou Lord of David's Key!
The royal door fling wide and tree;
Safeguard for us the heavenward road,
And bar the way to death's abode.

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



O come, O come, thou Dayspring bright!
Pour on our souls thy healing light;
Dispel the long night’s lingering gloom,
And pierce the shadows of the tomb.

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



O come, Desire of nations! show
Thy kingly reign cn earth below;
Thou Corner-stone, uniting all,
Restore the ruin of our fall.

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