A         D       E         A
Into the darkness of this world,
          D      A/E    E
into the shadows of the night;
F♯m        F♯m/E     B/D♯     E  E/D
into this loveless place You came,
A/C♯           D       E          F♯m
lightened our burdens, eased our pain,
     B7sus4    B7          Esus4   E
and made these hearts Your home.

Come with Your love to make us whole,
               E        D        E   A
come with Your light to lead us on,
             E       C♯7           F♯m   D
driving the darkness far from our souls:

O come, Lord Je  -  -  sus, come.

A         D      E        A
Into the longing of our souls,
            D    A/E       E
into these heavy hearts of stone,
F♯m         F♯m/E     B/D♯      E    E/D
shine on us now Your piercing light,
A/C♯         D      E        F♯m
order our lives and souls aright,
   B7sus4    B7      Esus4  E
by grace and love unknown
F♯m       F♯m/E    B/D♯    E
until in You our hearts unite.

A       D     E      A
O Holy Child, Emmanuel,

Hope of the ages, God with us,
F♯m   F♯m/E      B/D♯     E    E/D
Visit again this broken place
A/C♯           D      E            F♯m
till all the earth declares Your praise
    B7sus4     B7      Esus4  E
and Your great mercies own.
F♯m            F♯m/E    B/D♯    E
Now let Your love be  born in us.

O  come,  Lord  Je  -   -  sus, come.
Final chorus:
                 E    D        A
Come in Your glory, take Your place,
             E     D        E  A
Jesus, the Name above all names,
             E      C♯7       F♯m  D
we long to see You face to face
  A/E        E7sus4    E7    A  D  E7sus4  E7  A
O come, Lord Je  -  -  sus, come.

INTO THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD
Into the shadows of the night
Into this loveless place You came
Lightened our burdens, eased our pain
And made these hearts Your home
Into the darkness once again
Oh come, Lord Jesus, come

Come with Your love
To make us whole
Come with Your light
To lead us on
Driving the darkness
Far from our souls
O come, Lord Jesus, come

Into the longing of our souls
Into these heavy hearts of stone
Shine on us now Your piercing light
Order our lives and souls aright
By grace and love unknown
Until in You our hearts unite
Oh come, Lord Jesus, come

O Holy Child, Emmanuel
Hope of the ages, God with us
Visit again this broken place
Till all the earth declares Your praise
And Your great mercies own
Now let Your love be born in us
O come, Lord Jesus, come

(Last Chorus)
Come in Your glory
Take Your place
Jesus, the Name above all names
We long to see You face to face
O come, Lord Jesus, come
