Come, Emmanuel, and free our captive hearts that mourn. Bring us Your wisdom, and show us the path of truth so that we may walk in Your ways.
"O Come thou Dayspring, come and cheer
Our spirits by thine advent here;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And Death's dark shadows put to flight."
You are the Desire of Nations. Come, and bind us to Yourself. Fill the earth with Your peace, and give us hope. Thus may we rejoice in this the season of Your redeeming. The season of Your choosing. The season of Your holy birth.
