Sunday’s Hymn, December 12, 2010

A Latin Hymn sung in 4/4 time

1.      O come, O come, Emmanuel And ransom captive Israel, That mourns in lonely exile here, Until the Son of God appear.

(Refrain) Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel!

2.      O come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer Our spirits by Thine advent here; Disperse the gloomy clouds of night, And death’s dark shadows put to flight.

(Refrain)

3.      O come, Thou Wisdom from on high And order all things, far and nigh; To us the path of knowledge show And cause us in her ways to go.

(Refrain)

4.      O come, Desire of nations, bind All peoples in one heart and mind. Bid envy, strife, and quarrels cease; Fill the whole world with heaven’s peace.

(Refrain)
