Lyrics

(stanzas 1-4)
Come to us, Emmanuel,
Christ whose hope (love, joy, peace) we now await,
Whose birth the prophets did foretell,
Come to us we pray. Come to us we pray.

(stanza 5)
Shine in us, Emmanuel,
Christ whose light we celebrate,
Whose birth the prophets did foretell,
Shine in us we pray. Shine in us we pray.
