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 Dayspring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here;
Drive away the shades of night,
Pierce the clouds and bring us light
(Repeat Chorus)

O come, 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
(Repeat Chorus)

Spanish Lyrics:
¡Oh ven!, ¡Oh ven, Emanuel!

¡Oh ven!, ¡Oh ven, Emanuel!
Libra al cautivo Israel,
Que sufre desterrado aquí,
Y espera al Hijo de David.

¡Alégrate, oh Emanuel!
Pronto vendra Israel!

¡Oh ven, Tú, Aurora celestial!
Alúmbranos con tu verdad,
Disipa toda oscuridad,
Y danos días de solaz.

¡Oh ven, Tú, Vara de Isaí!
Redime al pueblo infeliz
Del poderío infernal
Y danos vida celestial.
