Sam Robson and Friends: O come, O come, Emmanuel

Scenes from the Life of Christ: 2. Adoration of the Magi, Fresco, 200 x 185 cm, Cappella Scrovegni (Arena Chapel), Padua,

O come, O come, Emmanuel

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 Rod of Jesse, free

Thine own from Satan’s tyranny

From depths of Hell Thy people save

And give them victory o’er the grave

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.

    The one Christmas song that arcs through the centuries, taking me to kneel at the manger. I especially love it as a plain chant in Latin.
