Lyrics:

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 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 

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 death’s 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, Thou Lord of might

Who to Thy tribes, on Sinai’s height

In ancient times did’st give the Law

In cloud, and majesty and awe

Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel

Shall come to thee, o Israel
