O COME, O COME EMMANUEL
new words & music by Stookey/DeCormier- 
Lawson-Gould Publishers ASCAP

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 day spring, come and cheer our spirits by thine advent here
And drive away the gloomy clouds of night, forever death's dark shadows put to flight.
Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, O come, Emmanuel ...
Come and ransom captive Israel

O come, thou key of David, come and open wide our heav'nly home.
Make safe the path that leads our hearts to thee, and close the door to misery.
Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel
Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel
