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

Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death’s dark shadows put to flight 

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel 

O come, Thou Key of David, come
And open wide our heavenly home
Make safe the way that leads on high
And close the path to misery
(Would you stand with us and sing this chorus? Rejoice)

Shall come to thee, O Israel (sing it again) 

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel
