O Come O Come Emmanuel/ What Child is This? - Linda Eder

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, thou lord of might,
Who to thy tribes on Sinai's height,
In ancient times did'st give the law,
In cloud, and majesty and awe

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 vict'ry o'er the grave

Rejoice! rejoice! Emmanuel,
Shall come to thee, o Israel

O come, thou key of David, come,
And open wide our heav'nly 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, 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

What child is this, who laid to rest,
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?

This this is Christ the king
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste haste to bring Him laud
The babe the son of Mary

So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh,
Come, peasant, king to own Him
The king of kings salvation brings,
Let loving hearts enthrone Him

This, this is Christ the king
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste haste to bring Him laud
The babe the son of Mary
