O come, O Wisdom from on high,
who orders all things mightily,
to us the path of knowledge show,
and teach us in her ways to go.
O come, O come, thou Lord of
might, Who to Thy tribes on
Sinai's height in ancient times
didst give the law In cloud and
majesty, and awe.
O come, O Rod of Jesse free,
Thine own from Satan's tyranny;
From depths of hell Thy people
save, And give them victory o'er
O come, thou Key of David,
come, And open wide our heavenly
home; Make safe the way that
leads on high, And close the path
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.
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
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.
