O come O come Emmanuel

[traditional carol, arranged by tim]

o come o come emmanuel
and ransom captive israel
that mourns in lowly exile here
until the son of god appear

rejoice! rejoice!
emmanuel shall come to thee
o israel.

o come thou rod of jesse, free
thine own from satan’s tyranny
from the depths of hell thy people save
and give them victory o’er the grave.

rejoice! rejoice!

o come thou dayspring, come and cheer
our spirits by thine advent here
and drive away the shades of night
pierce the clouds and bring us light

rejoice! rejoice!
