MONDAY: HOPE

SCRIPTURE: Matthew 21:1-11

O come, o come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!

O come, Thou Wisdom, from on high,
And order all things far and nigh;
To us the path of knowledge show,
And teach us in her ways to go.
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!

O come, o come, Thou Lord of might,
Who to thy tribes on Sinai's height
In ancient times did give the law,
In cloud, and majesty, and awe.
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse's stem,
From every foe deliver them
That trust Thy mighty power to save,
And give them vict'ry o'er the grave.
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!

O come, Thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heav'nly home,
Make safe the way that leads on high,
That we no more have cause to sigh.
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!

O come, Thou Dayspring from on high,
And cheer us by thy drawing nigh;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death's dark shadow put to flight.
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!

O come, Desire of nations, bind
In one the hearts of all mankind;
Bid every strife and quarrels cease
And fill the world with heave's peace.
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!
