Song Lyrics

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel (author unknown)
O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Day-Spring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death's dark shadows put to flight.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

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

Come, Come, Whoever You Are (Lyrics: Rumi, Music: Lynn Ungar)

Come, come whoever you are -

wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving.

Ours is no caravan of despair.

Come, yet again come
