O Come O Come Emanuel
by Whitney Houston



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.
O come O come thou Lord of might
who to thy tribes on sinai's height;
in ancient times did 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 Dayspring, 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.
O come thou Key of David come
And open wide our heavn'ly home;
make safe the way that leads on high,'
and close the path to misery
Rejoice, Rejoice, Emmanuel
shall come to thee, O Israel.
Rejoice, Rejoice, Emmanuel
shall come to thee, O Israel.
