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 you, O Israel.

O come, O Branch of Jesse, free your own from Satan’s tyranny;

from depths of hell your people save and give them vict’ry o’er the grave.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to you, O Israel.

O come, O Key of David, come, and open wide our heav’nly home;

make safe the way that leads on high and close the path to misery. 

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to you, O Israel.

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 you, O Israel.
