our ruler and lawgiver,
the expectation and savior of the nations:
Come and set us free, O Lord our God.

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

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

  1. This is one of my favorite songs. I didn’t get a chance to lead the song at church this Christmas season, but I can always do it on my own.
