Hearts waiting, waiting on a Savior
Come, o come, Emmanuel
Hear the prophets
Speaking of the promise
Come, o come, Emmanuel
A light of glory filled the sky
And we heard the angel choir.

The Lord has come

Joy to the world
A Savior for all
The Lord has come
The Lord has come to us

Messiah, Ruler of the nations
Come, o come, Emmanuel
Our Redeemer,
God is with us, God is for us
Come, o come, Emmanuel
The doors of heaven open wide
Can you hear the song inside?

And He shall reign forever and ever
He shall reign forever
And He shall reign forever and ever
He shall reign forevermore

Come, o come, Emmanuel
Come, o come, Emmanuel
