O Emmanuel

O Emmanuel (Isa 7: 14; 8: 8), 
our King and Lawgiver (Gen 49:10; cf. Ezek 21: 32), the Expected of the nations and their Savior (Isa 33: 22): Come, and save us, O Lord our God.

Veni, Veni, Emmanuel captivum solve Israel,
qui gemit in exsilio, privatus Dei Filio.

(1) 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!

Gaude! Gaude! Emmanuel nascetur pro te Israel!

Isaiah 7:14
Matthew 1:23
1 Timothy 4:9
Psalm 14:7
Phil 4:4
