  Come, O come, Emmanuel!
   Redeem thy captive Israel,
   That into exile drear is gone
Far from the face of God’s dear Son:
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, thou Branch of Jesse! Draw
The quarry from the lion’s claw’
From the dread caverns of the grave,
From nether hell, thy people save:
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, O come, thou Dayspring bright!
Pour on our souls thy healing light;
Dispel the long night’s lingering gloom,
And pierce the shadows of the tomb:
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, thou Lord of David’s key!
The royal door fling wide and free;
Safeguard for us the heavenward road,
And bar the way to death’s abode:
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, O come, Adonaї,
Who in thy glorious majesty
From that high mountain clothed with awe
Gavest thy folk the elder law:
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

 
 

The music for this page is Veni Emmanuel a 15th century plainsong melody WOV193. That is another example of Crede Signo perhaps too.

The 13th century author of the original Latin words of this hymn is unknown. This early 20th century re-translation is by T A Lacey.   O Come O Come Emmanuel is perhaps the best known of all the Advent hymns and probably the oldest.


Postscript. As I read this paragraph to Jenny after playing through the full hymn in the browser for the first time with my new midi file which had given me more trouble than other tune, I found myself saying different words.  I found myself saying "The 13th century author of the original Latin words of this hymn is known only to God".  Then my voice broke as it often does when somehow my mind is linked to the spirits of the dead. I made a note in my notebook. The time was 1.46.00pm on 8th December 2006.  It is indeed the time of the Advent of 600.

The first update of this Voice of God site since 2006 was done on 11th September 2012, to mark the 11th anniversary of 9/11.  That was when I revised the site after it had been down since 6th August 2012, because of the Delete All instruction.  On 9/11/12, The Voice told me it was time to republish VoG with the latest information.   I added the message from the spirit of Osama bin Laden which came to me on 5th September, triggered by some words uttered by the wife of his 'namesake' .......  and an interview with one of the 'mission heroes' promoting his new book.  But then there were so many computer software malfunctions.  The site was finally re-published at  1.44pm  6th October, 2012.
Republished in doomsday rainbow format 5th March, 2015.   Water meter reading 3rd March 2834.22933m3. kWh 33400.   Obelisk shadow pointed to 'the black earth'.  BS28 On 5th March water meter read 2834.5570 and power meter 33455kWh Be Thou My Vision.... Everything is precisely measured by the Ancient of Days, the Sentinel of Eternity, the Creator of Space and Time.
