O Come O Come Emmanuel

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,
and order all things far and nigh;
To us the path of knowledge show;
and cause us in her ways to go.

O come, o come great Lord of might,
Who to Thy tribes on Sinai’s height
In ancient time once gave the law
in cloud and majesty and awe.

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.
