O come, O come Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lowly exile here
Until the Son of God appear

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee O Israel

O come, O come great Lord of Might
Who long ago at Sinai height
To Israel’s tribe did give the law
In cloud and majesty and awe

O come, O branch of Jesse, free
Your own from Satan’s tyranny
From depths of hell your people save
To rise victorious from the grave

O come strong key of David, come
And open wide our heavenly home!
Make safe the way that leads on high
And close the path to misery
