O come, divine Messiah!

O come, divine Messiah!
The world in silence waits the day
When hope shall sing its triumph,
And sadness flee away.

Dear Saviour, haste;
Come, come to earth;
Dispel the night, and show thy face,
And bid us hail the dawn of grace.

O come, divine Messiah,
The world in silence waits the day
When hope shall sing its triumph,
And sadness flee away.

O thou, whom nations sighed for,
Whom priests and prophets long foretold,
Wilt break the captive fetters,
Redeem the long lost fold.

O come, divine Messiah,
The world in silence waits the day
When hope shall sing its triumph,
And sadness flee away.
