Verse 1:O come, O come Emmanuel And ransom captive Israel That mourns in lonely exile here Until the Son of God appear
Chorus: Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel Has come to thee, oh Israel
Verse 2: O come, Thou Wisdom from on high And order all things far and nigh To us the path of knowledge show And in her ways cause us to go
Verse 3: O come, Desire of nations, bind In one the hearts of all mankind; Bid Thou our sad divisions cease, And be Thyself our King of Peace.
