Lyrics

(Source: as heard, Latin translation by Jason R Tibbetts)

(Marie-Bernadette O'Connor)
Veni, veni, Emmanuel!
Come, come, Emmanuel!
Captivum solve Israel
Free captive Israel
Qui gemit in exilio,
Which sighs in captivity,
Privatus Dei Filio.
Bereft of the Son of God.
Gaude, gaude! Emmanuel
Rejoice, rejoice! Emmanuel
Nascetur pro te, Israel!
Will be born for you, Israel!
(Nóirín Ní Riain)
Veni, veni, O Oriens,
Solare non adveniens,
Noctis depelle nebulas,
Dirasque noctis tenebras.
(all)
Gaude, gaude, Emmanuel
Nascetur pro te, Israel!
(Paul Nash)
Veni, Clavis Davidica!
Regna reclude caelica.
Fac iter tutum superum,
Et claude vias inferum.
(all)
Gaude, gaude, Emmanuel
Nascetur pro te, Israel!
Veni, veni, Adonai!
Qui populo in Sinai
Legem dedisti vertice,
In maiestate gloriae.
Gaude, gaude, Emmanuel
Nascetur pro te, Israel!
