1.  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.

2.  O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
    Thine own from Satan's tyranny
    From depths of Hell Thy people save
    And give them victory o'er the grave
    Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
    Shall come to thee, O Israel.

3.  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 thy ways to go. 
	
4.  O come, Thou Key of David, come,
    And open wide our heavenly home;
    Make safe the way that leads on high,
    And close the path to misery.
    Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
    Shall come to thee, O Israel.
	
    Refrain:
    Rejoice! Rejoice! 
    Emmanuel shall come to thee, 
    O Israel.
