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 wisdom from on high,
and order all things mightily,
to us the path of knowledge show,
and teach us in her ways to go.
O come, o come, Adonai,
who to Thy tribes on Sinai’s height
in ancient times didst give the law,
in cloud and majesty and awe.
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.
tr. J.M.Neale (1851)
