  Em               Am      G
O come, O come, E– man– u– el,
    Em             Am      Em
And ransom captive Is– ra– el
     Am              Em    D
That mourns in lowly exile here,
    Em             Am      G
Un– til the Son of God ap– pear.

       D            Em         Am        Em
  Re – joice!  Re – joice!  E– man – u – el
        G                Am   Em
  Shall come to thee, O  Is – rael.

O come, thou Wisdom from on high,
Who ord'rest all things mightily;
To us the path of knowledge show
And teach us in her ways to go.

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.

O come, thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyranny;
From the depths of hell Thy people save
And give them vict'ry o'er the grave.

O come, thou Key of David, come
And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.

O come, thou Dayspring, come and cheer
Our spitis by thine advent here;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death's dark shadows put to flight.

O come, Desire of nations, bind
All peoples in one heart and mind;
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease,
And be Thyself our King of Peace.
