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, O come, great Lord of might who to Thy tribes on Sinai's height
In ancient times once gave the law, in cloud and majesty and awe.
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to Thee, O Israel.
O come desire of nations, bind in one the hearts of all mankind.
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease and be Thyself the King of Peace.
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to Thee, O Israel.

...and they will call him "Immanuel"--which means, "God with us."
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
Take O take me as I am.
Summon out what I should be.
Set your seal upon my heart
and live in me.
