Description

For SAB Choir and Organ or Piano. A delicious new setting of the O Antiphon text. not at all what you expect, haunting and altogether fetching! Wonderful for your choristers as well.

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 Rod of Jesee, free,
thine own from Satan's tyranny;

from depths of hell thy people save,
and give them victory o'er the grave;

Rejoice! rejoice! Emmanuel,
shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Day-Spring,
Come and cheer
Our spirits by thine advent here,

disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
and death’s dark shadows put to flight;

Rejoice! rejoice! Emmanuel,
shall come to thee, O Israel.

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;
Rejoice! rejoice!
Emmanuel,
shall come to thee, O Israel.
