Veni, Veni Emmanuel!

Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Emmanuel.
Isaiah 7:14

Veni, Veni Emmanuel!
Captivum solve Israel!
Qui gemit in exsilio,
Privatus Dei Filio.

O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.

Gaude, gaude, Emmanuel
Nascetur pro te, Israel.

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