Hymns of My Youth II: O Come, O Come, Emmanuel


Then I will set the key of the house of David on his shoulder,
When he opens no one will shut,
When he shuts no one will open.

—Isaiah 22:22

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

image

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, 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.

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 vict’ry o’er the grave.

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

O come, Thou Day-spring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here;
o drive away the shades of night
And pierce the clouds and give us light.

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

O come, Thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heavenly home
where all Thy saints with Thee shall dwell—
O come, O come, Emmanuel!

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