O Come, O Come, Emanuel - Linda Ronstadt

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 Dayspring, bright 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 Wisdom from on high,
Who orders all things far and nigh
To us the path of knowledge show,
And teach us in her ways to go.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee O Israel
O come, Desire of nations, bind
All peoples in one the heart and mind;
Bid envy strife and quarrels cease,
Fill the whole world with Heaven's peace
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee O Israel
