Advent - December 21st

By Hymn Reflection - Tuesday December 21, 2021

Tuesday, December 21st

 

Reflect on the Hymn O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

O come, O come, Emmanuel,
and ransom captive Israel,
that mourns in lonely exile here,
until the Son of God appear.

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 Wisdom from on high,
and order all things, far and nigh;
to us the path of knowledge of show,
and cause 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 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.

 

Chalice Hymnal 119
CCLI #225547
