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.

Refrain: 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.
Refrain: 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 over the grave.
Refrain: 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.
Refrain: 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.
Refrain: Rejoice! Rejoice!
 Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, O come, great Lord of might,
 Who to Thy tribes on Sinai’s height
 In ancient times once gave the law
 In cloud and majesty and awe.
Refrain: Rejoice! Rejoice!
 Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.


O come, Thou Root of Jesse’s tree,
 An ensign of Thy people be;
 Before Thee rulers silent fall;
 All peoples on Thy mercy call.
Refrain: 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.
Refrain: Rejoice! Rejoice!
 Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.
