Veni veni Emmanuel
Captivum solve 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 thee O Israel

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


Come thou long expected Jesus
Born to set thy people free
From our fears and sins release us
Let us find our rest in thee
Israel’s strength and consolation
Hope of all the earth thou art
Dear desire of every nation
Joy of every longing heart

Born thy people to deliver
Born a child and yet a king
Born to reign in us forever
Now thy gracious kingdom bring
By thine own eternal spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone
By thine all sufficient merit
Raise us to thy glorious throne
Rejoice rejoice
Emmanuel is come to thee O Israel

Christ is come to thee O Israel

Veni veni Emmanuel
