2 O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free

Thine own from Satan's tyranny; From depths of hell Thy people save And give them victory o’er the grave.

Rejoice! rejoice! Immanuel

Shall come to thee, O Israel! 3 0 come, Thou Day-spring, come and

cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here:
And drive away the shades of night,
And pierce the clouds and bring us

Rejoice! rejoice! Immanuel (light!
Shall come to thee, O Israel!

4 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.

Rejoice! rejoice! Immanuel

Shall come to thee, O Israel! 5 O come, O come, Thou Lord of might,

Who to Thy tribes, on Sinai's height
In ancient times didst give the law
In cloud, and majesty, and awe.

Rejoice! rejoice! Immanuel
Shall come to the, O Israel!

2 When Jesus enters meek and lowly,

To fill the home with sweetest peace;,
When hearts have felt His blessing holy,

And found from sin complete release,
Then light and calm within shall reign,

And hearts divided love again.
3 When Jesus enters land and nation,

And moves the people with His love,
When yielding to His kind persuasion,

Our hearts His truth and blessings prove,
Then shall our life on earth be blest

The peace of God on us shall rest.
4 When Jesus comes, O blessed story!

He works a change in heart and life;
God's kingdom comes with power and glory

To young and old, to man and wife;
Through sacrament and living word,

Faith, love and hope are now conferred.
5 Then stilled are cries and lamentation,

Then loosed is every Satan's band,
In death is hope and consolation,

The soul is safe in Jesus' hand:
When we shall walk through death's dark vale

His rod and staff shall never fail.
6 O may He soon to every nation

Find entrance where He is unknown,
With life and light and full salvation

That heathendom may be o’erthrown,
And healing to the hearts may come

In heathen land and Christian home!
7 Behold, He at the door is knocking!

Hark, how He pleads our souls to win!
Who hears His voice-- the door unlocking-

To sup with him He enters in!
How blest the day, my soul, how blest!

When Jesus comes to be thy guest!
8 Behold, He at the door is calling,

O heed, my soul, what He doth say;
Deny Him not- O thought appalling-

And turn Him not from thee away.
My soul gives answer deep within:

Thou blessed of the Lord, ome in.
9 Come Thou who spreadest joy and gladness,

Forever bide with me and mine,
And bring to those who sit in sadness

And gloom of death Thy light divine:
A voice comes from my soul within;
Thou blessed of the Lord, come in!

[blocks in formation]

Hark the glad sound! the Sav-ior comes, The Sav-ior promised long:
