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.

O come, thou spring day, come and cheer
our spirits by thine advent here;
disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
and death's dark shadow put to flight.

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, 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.

Veni Emmanuel.
