Track Name: O Come O Come Emmanuel
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 Rod of Jesse, free
thine own from Satan's tyranny.
From depths of hell thy people save,
and give them victory o'er the grave.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel!

O come , thou Dayspring, come and cheer
our spirits by thine advent here.
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
and death's dark shadows put to flight.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel!

O come, desire of nations, bind
all peoples in one heart and mind.
Bid envy, strife, and quarrels cease.
Fill the whole world with heaven's peace.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel!
Track Name: O Child, Wait for the Lord
I cried out to the Lord
I cried all through the night
I cried out to the Lord, but the Lord stayed silent
so I finally just fell asleep.

O child, wait for the Lord
O child, wait for the Lord
O child, wait for the Lord -
Wait for the Lord, child -
Wait 'cause the good Lord sees.

I wandered from my home
I walked all through this land
I wandered from my home, and I walked all alone
'cause nobody came to walk with me

O child, wait for the Lord
O child, wait for the Lord
O child, wait for the Lord -
Wait for the Lord, child -
Wait 'cause the good Lord sees

I sat down to rest my bones
I sat still to rest my soul
I sat down to rest my bones
and the silence rang louder than the sea

Be still and know I am God
Be still and know I am God
Be still and know I am God
O wait for the Lord, child -
Wait 'cause the good Lord sees

O child, wait for the Lord
O child, wait for the Lord
O child, wait for the Lord -
Wait for the Lord, child -
Wait 'cause the good Lord sees.
