Catholic Mass Songs Lyrics


1. O come, O come Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lowly exile here until the Son of God appear.

Rejoice! Rejoice! O Israel! To thee shall come Emmanuel.

2. O come, Thou wisdom from on high, and order all things far and nigh;
To us the path of knowledge show, 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.
