O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

  1. 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.
  2. O come, thou Wisdom, from on high,
    And order all things far and nigh;
    To us the path of knowledge show,
    And teach us in her ways to go.
  3. O come, O come, thou Lord of might,
    Who to thy tribes, on Sinai's height,
    In ancient times did give the law,
    In cloud, and majesty, and awe.
  4. O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
    Thine own from Satanís tyranny;
    From depths of hell thy people save,
    And give them vict'ry o'er the grave.
  5. O come, thou Key of David, come,
    And open wide our heav'nly home,
    Make safe the way that leads on high,
    And close the path to misery.
  6. O come, thou Day-spring, come and cheer
    Our spirits by thine advent here;
    Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
    And death's dark shadows put to flight.
  7. O come, Desire of the nations, bind
    In one the hearts of all mankind;
    Bid evíry strife and sorrow cease
    And fill the world with heaven's peace.
