"O Come, O Come Emmanuel" as written by Robert Halford, Roger Ramirez and John Mason Neale....
O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appears

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, 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

O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appears

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