O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

Translation by T. A. Lacey, 1906

 

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 Dayspring, come and cheer

Our spirits by thy justice here

Disperse the gloomy clouds of night

And death’s dark shadows put to flight

 

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Shall come to thee, O Israel

 

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Shall come to thee, O Israel

 

Shall come to thee, O Israel
