O Oriens (O Dayspring)
O Dayspring, splendor of light everlasting:
Come and enlighten those who sit in darkness
and in the shadow of death.
“O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” verse six:
O come, Thou Dayspring from on high,
And cheer us by Thy drawing nigh;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death’s dark shadows put to flight.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!
