A treasured Advent hymn is reborn in this haunting new setting. Scored for SATB choir and piano with optional cello part available for purchase. The integrity and strength of the text is beautifully developed, moving steadily to its compelling conclusion.
O Come, O Come Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.
O come thou Dayspring come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine Advent here,
and drive away the shades of night,
And pierce the clouds and bring us light!
Emmanuel shall come to thee
O come, Desire of nations, bind
All people in one heart and mind;
Bid envy strife and quarrels cease,
And fill the world with Heaven's peace.
