O Dayspring

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!

O Dayspring, splendor of light everlasting:
     Come and enlighten those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death.
