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.

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.

O come, thou Rod of Jesse, free Thine own from Satan’s tyranny;
from depths of hell Thy people save and give them vict’ry o’er the grave.

O come, Thou Day-spring, come and cheer our spirits by Thine advent here;
O drive away the shades of night and pierce the clouds and bring us light.

O come, Thou Key of David, come and open wide our heav’nly home
where all Thy saints with Thee shall dwell-O come, O come, Emmanuel!

Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel and ransom captive Israel
