O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the son of God appears

Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyranny
From depths of hell Thy people save
And give them victory over the grave

Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

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

Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

So rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel
Has come to thee, O Israel
Has come to thee, O Israel, Israel
