O come, o come Emmanuel

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

Ref.: Rejoice rejoice Emmanuel
Shall come to thee O Israel

2) O come Thou Dayspring come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death's dark shadows put to flight

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 her ways to go

4) O come Desire of nations bind
All peoples in one heart and mind
Bid envy strife and quarrels cease
Fill the whole world with heaven's peace
