O COME, DIVINE MESSIAH
1. O come divine Messiah; the world in silence waits the day
When hope shall sing its triumph and sadness flee away.
Dear savior, haste! Come come to earth. Dispel the night and show your face and bid us hail the sawn of grace.
O come divine Messiah, the world in silence waits the day, when hope shall sing its triumph and silence flee away.
2. O Christ, whom the nations sign for,
Whom priest and prophet long foretold,
Come, break the captive’s fetters,
Redeem the long lost fold.
3. Thou come in peace and meekness and lowly will your cradle be;
All clothed in human weakness
Shall we your Godhead see.
