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 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.
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.
