O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

O come, O come, Emmanuel!
Redeem thy captive Israel,
That into exile drear is gone
Far from the face of God's dear Son

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, O come thou Dayspring bright!

Pour on our souls thy healing light;
Dispel the long night's lingering gloom,
And pierce the shadow of the tomb.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, thou Lord of David's key!
The royal door flung wide and free;
Safeguard for us the heavenward road,
And bar the way to death's abode.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.



from O Come, O Come, Emmanuel by T.A. Lacey
