Verse 1

Em                 Am   Em
O come, O come, Em-manu-el,

Am   Em            Am   Em
And ransom captive Isra-el,

     Am               G D A   D
That mourns in lonely e-x-ile here

G   D      Em     Am  Em
Unt-il the Son of God appear.

Refrain

   D        Em

Emmanu-el shall come to thee, O Isra-el.

Em                  Am      Em
O come, Thou Wisdom from on high,

Am   Em                 Am     Em
Who orderest all things mighti-ly;

      Am            G  D  A   D
To us the path of know-le-dge show,

G   D     Em    Am          Em
And teach us in her ways to go.

Em                  Am     Em
O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free

Am    Em               Am    Em
Thine own from Satan’s tyran-ny;

     Am                 G  D   A D
From depths of hell Thy pe-opl-e save,

G   D    Em           Am       Em
And give them victory over the grave.

O come, Thou Day-spring, come and cheer

Am   Em              Am     Em
Our spirits by Thine advent here;

     Am              G  D   A   D
Disperse the gloomy clo-uds of night,

G   D       Em           Am     Em
And death’s dark shadows put to flight.
