BEHOLD EMMANUEL

This arrangement based on “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” trades the familiar theme among all four voices, with each part taking its turn accompanying, yet it easily maintains the stylistic integrity of that beloved melody.

LYRICS

A virgin shall conceive and bear a Son
and his name shall be called Emmanuel

Veni, veni, 
Emmanuel captivum solve Israel
qui gemit in exilio
privatus Dei Filio

Gaude, gaude, 
Emmanuel nacetur prote Israel

O come, thou branch of Jesse,
draw the quarry from the lion’s claw,
from the dread caverns of the grave,
from nether hell thy people save.

Rejoice, rejoice, 
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel

Veni, veni O Oriens;
O come, O come thou day spring bright!
Pour on our souls thy healing light.

Noctis depelle nebulas.
Dirasque noctis tenebras.

Gaude, gaude
Emmanuel shall come to us, O Israel.

Veni, veni, Emmanuel
captivum solve Israel

O come, behold, Emmanuel.
