O Come, O Come, Emmanuel lyrics

by Enya

O come, O come Emmanuel
To free your captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear

Rejoice, rejoice O Israel
To you shall come Emmanuel

Oh...

Veni, veni, Emmanuel
Captivum solve Israel
Qui gemit in exilio
Privatus Dei Filio

Gaude, gaude, Emmanuel
Nascetur pro te, Israel

[Interlude]

Gaude, gaude, Emmanuel
Nascetur pro te, Israel

Gaude, gaude, Emmanuel
Nascetur pro te, Israel
