O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

Latin Hymn

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 depth 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...
