MUSIC O Come O Come Emmanuel
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 oh Israel.
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.
O come thou 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
Oh come desire of nations bind
All peoples in one heart and mind
Bid envy strife and quarrels cease
Fill the whole world with heavens peace
