Play the song ‘O Come Emmanuel’ by Folk Angel from ‘Headed Home’ album

Lyrics:

O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan’s tyranny
From depths of hell Thy people save
And give them victory over the grave

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
Rejoice, rejoice
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel

O come, O come, great Lord of might
Who to Thy tribes on Sinai’s height
In ancient times once gave the law
In cloud and majesty and awe

Rejoice, rejoice
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel
Rejoice, rejoice
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel
Shall come to thee, O Israel
