Come

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, now Wisdom from on high,
Who orders all things mightily; 
To us the path of knowledge show, 
And teach us in her ways to go. 
Rejoice! Rejoice! 
Emmanuel Shall come to you, O Israel! 

O come, O come, now Lord of might, 
Who to your tribes on Sinai’s height 
In ancient times you gave the law, 
In cloud, and majesty, and awe. 
Rejoice! Rejoice! 
Emmanuel Shall come to you, 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 you, O Israel!
