featuring Exultate Chamber Singers – director Hilary Apfelstadt
Creator of the stars of night, your people’s everlasting light
O Christ redeemer of us all we pray you hear us when we call.
When this old world drew on t’ward night, you came: but not in splendour’ bright,
Not as a monarch, but the child of Mary, blessed mother mild.
O come, O come, Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here until the Son of God appear.
Emmanuel shall come to you, O Isreal.
O come King of nations, come, O Cornerstone that binds in one:
Refresh the hearts that long for you:
Restore the broken, make us new.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to you, O Israel
To God the Father, God the Son and God the Spirit, Three in One,
Praise, honour, might and glory be from age to age eternally.
