Text: Traditional

Text:

Veni, veni, Rex Gentium
Veni, Redemptor omnium
Ut salvas tuos famulos
peccati sibi conscious.
Gaude, Emmanuel.
Nascetur prote Israel, Emmanuel. 

Translation:  

O Come, Desire of Nations
Bind in one the hearts of all mankind,
Bid every strife and quarrel cease,
And fill the world with heaven’s peace
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel,
Shall come to thee, O, Israel.

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