Verse 1
     Em                    Am Em
O come, O come Emmanuel, 
                               D  Em
and ransom captive Israel,
         Am                    G/B
That mourns in lowly exile 
        Em                      Am-D G
here until the Son of God appear.

     G           Em      Am Em
Rejoice! Rejoice! O Israel!
                                     D   Em
To thee shall come Emmanuel.

Verse 2
     Em                             Am Em
O come, Thou wisdom from on high,
                                      D  Em
and order all things far and nigh;
             Am                          G/B
To us the path of knowledge show,
        Em                      Am-D G
and teach us in her ways to go.

3. O come, O come Thou Lord of might, 
who to thy tribes on Sinai’s height
In ancient times did give the law, 
in cloud, and majesty, and awe.

4. O come, Thou rod of Jesse’s stem 
from ev’ry foe deliver them
That trust thy mighty power to save, 
and give them vict’ry o’er to grave.

5. O come, Thou key of David come, 
and open wide our heav’nly home,
Make safe the way that leads to high, 
that we no more have cause to sigh.

6. O come, Thou dayspring from on high, 
and cheer us but thy drawing nigh;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night, 
And death’s dark shadow put to fight.

7. O come, desire of nations, bind, 
in one the hearts of all mankind:
Bid ev’ry strife and quarrel cease 
and fill the world with heaven’s peace.
