Veni, Emmanuel

O appear and make your home

among men.  Emmanuel, who comes.

O draw down and reveal

grace to them.  Emmanuel, who saves.

O dwell in their flesh that’s

all fallen death.  Emmanuel, who lives.

O return again before the world

on knees bent.  Emmanuel, who reigns.

O Let nothing remain in man

of sin and death.  God-with-us, who loves.
