Track Name: Veni Veni Emmanuel
Veni, veni Emmanuel!
Captivum solve Israel!
Qui gemit in exsilio,
Privatus Dei Filio.

(refrain:) Gaude, gaude, Emmanuel
Nascetur pro te, Israel.

Veni, O Sapientia,
Quae hic disponis omnia,
Veni, viam prudentiae
Ut doceas et gloriae.

Veni, O Jesse virgula,
Ex hostis tuos ungula,
De specu tuos tartari
Educ at antro barathri.

Veni, Clavis Davidica,
Regna reclude caelica,
Fac iter tutum supernum,
Et claude vias inferum.

Veni, veni O Oriens!
Solare nos adveniens,
Noctis depelle nebulas,
Dirasque mortis tenebras.

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.
Track Name: We Three Kings
We three kings of Orient are
bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain, moor and mountain
following yonder star.

(refrain:) Oh star of wonder, star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Born a king on Bethlehem’s plain
Gold I bring, to crown him again
King forever, ceasing never
over us all to reign.

Frankincense to offer have I
Incense owns a deity nigh
Prayer and praising, all men raising
Worshiping God on high.

Myrrh is mine – its bitter perfume
Breathes a life of gathering gloom
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying
Sealed in the stone-cold tomb.

Glorious now behold him arise
King and God and Sacrifice
Alleluia, Alleluia
Sounds through the Earth and Skies.
Track Name: How Great Our Joy
While by the sheep we watched at night,
Glad tidings brought an angel bright.

(refrain:) How great our joy (great our joy)
Joy, joy, joy! (joy, joy, joy!)
Praise we the Lord in Heaven on high (Praise we the Lord in Heaven on high).

There shall be born, so he did say
In Bethlehem a child today.

There shall the child lie in a stall
This child who shall redeem us all.

This gift of God we’ll cherish well
That ever joy our hearts shall fill.
Track Name: Ox, Ass, and Rose
Lo, how a Rose e’er blooming
from tender stem hath sprung!
Of Jesse’s lineage coming,
as men of old have sung.
It came, a flow’ret bright,
amid the cold of winter,
when half spent was the night.

Isaiah ‘twas foretold it,
the Rose I have in mind;
with Mary we behold it,
the virgin mother kind.
To show God’s love aright,
she bore to us a Savior,
when half spent was the night.

The shepherds heard the story
proclaimed by angels bright,
how Christ, the Lord of glory
was born on earth this night.
To Bethlehem they sped
and in the manger found Him,
as angel heralds said.
