  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 orders all things mightily;
    To us the path of knowledge show,
    And teach us in its ways to go.
  3. O come, Thou Branch of Jesse’s stem,
    Unto Thine own and rescue them!
    From depths of hell Thy people save,
    And give them vict’ry o’er the grave.
  4. O come, Thou Key of David, come
    And open wide our heav’nly home;
    Make safe for us the heav’nward road,
    And bar the way to death’s abode.
  5. O come, Thou Bright and Morning Star,
    And bring us comfort from afar!
    Dispel the shadows of the night
    And turn our darkness into light.
  6. O come, Desire of nations, bind
    In one the hearts of all mankind;
    Bid all our sad divisions cease,
    And be Thyself our King of Peace.
