O Root of Jesse

19 Dec

O come, Thou Branch of Jesse’s tree,
Free them from Satan’s tyranny
That trust Thy mighty pow’r to save,
And give them vict’ry o’er the grave.

Rejoice!  Rejoice!  Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!

O Root of Jesse, standing as an ensign before the peoples, before whom all kings are mute, to whom the nations will do homage:
     Come quickly to deliver us.
