O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear

O come, Thou, Dayspring from on high
And cause Thy light on us to rise
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death's dark shadow put to flight
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Shall come to thee, O Israel!

O come, O come, true prophet of the Lord
And turn the key to heaven’s door

Be Thou our comforter and guide

And lead us to the Father’s side
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Shall by His Word our darkness dispel

O come, our great High Priest, and intercede
Thy sacrifice, our only plea
The judgment we no longer fear

Thy precious blood has brought us near
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Has banished every fear of hell

O Come, Thou King of nations, bring
An end to all our suffering
Bid every pain and sorrow cease

And reign now as our Prince of Peace
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Shall come again with us to dwell
