O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

John Mason Neale (Translator), Edward Riojas (Illustrator)

Resound this ancient Advent hymn, traditionally sung the week before Christmas. Each stanza highlights an Old Testament name for the coming Messiah, answering their prayers—and ours—with Emmanuel: God with us.

Vibrant illustrations will help readers appreciate the many prophecies fulfilled by Christ, even as they await His return. Special content includes a spread dedicated to the O Antiphons upon which the hymn is based.

A free Children's Christmas Program is available to accompany this book.

  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!
  1. 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.
    (Refrain)
  1. 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.
    (Refrain)
  1. O come, Thou Branch of Jesse’s tree,
    Free them from Satan’s tyranny
    That trust Thy mighty pow’r to save,
    And give them vict’ry o’er the grave.
    (Refrain)
  1. O come, Thou Key of David, come,
    And open wide our heav’nly home;
    Make safe the way that leads on high,
    And close the path to misery.
    (Refrain)
  1. O come, Thou Dayspring from on high,
    And cheer us by Thy drawing nigh;
    Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
    And death’s dark shadows put to flight.
    (Refrain)
  1. O come, Desire of nations, bind
    In one the hearts of all mankind;
    Bid Thou our sad divisions cease,
    And be Thyself our King of Peace.
    (Refrain)
