Lyrics:
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 Day-spring, come and cheer 
    Our spirits by Thine advent here;
    Disperse the gloomy clouds of night, 
    And death's dark shadows put to flight.
    Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel 
    Shall come to thee, O Israel!

3.  O come, Desire of nations, bind 
    All peoples in one heart and mind;
    Bid envy, strife, and discord cease;
    Fill the whole world with heaven's peace.
    Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel 
    Shall come to thee, O Israel!
