Veni, Veni, Emanuel

O come to us o long awaited lord,

from sin and death do.save us all,

upon us let his spirit fall down as the rain is poured.I

Veni, O Jesse Virgula

O come to us the shoot of Jesse’s tree,

make us one and all into children of God,

from sin and death to ransom is all,

so that we will be forever set free.

Veni, Veni, O Oriens

O come, O come to us first light from on high,

light this world and banish darkness now,

and send your welcome to all of heavens sky.

Veni, Veni, Clavis Davidica

O come the key of David come,

and pay the massive ransom sum.

O come and open lock and key,

make satan lose his grip and flee.

Veni, Veni, Adonai

Bring us back to you enthrojed on high,

into lowly birth and humanness and in God you trust,

you hear our prayers and end all of our lonely sighs.

Veni, Veni, Rex Gentium,

O come to us O king of nations,

move us along this constant changing continuum,

 unite is all to one and all,

return us to the state we had before the tragic fall.

T.S. Deary
