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 Dayspring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death's dark shadows put to flight. [Refrain]
3 O come, Thou Key of David, come,
and open wide our heav'nly home.
Make safe the way that leads on high,
and show the path that brings us nigh. [Refrain]
