O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

12th century (?) Latin
translated from Latin to English by John M. Neale, 1851 (altered)

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
