O COME, THOU WISDOM WHOSE DECREE
1. O come, thou wisdom whose
Doth govern all things peacefully;
The way of prudence here below,
And life hereafter deign to show.
Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel,
Is born to save thee, Israel.
2. O come, thou everlasting Lord,
Who once by Israel’s host adored,
Thy dread commandment madest
In majesty of glory show.
3. O come, thou Daystar seen on high,
With healing for our hearts draw
Do thou the mist of night dispel,
And death’s foreboding darkness
