O Come Divine Messiah


"O COME, DIVINE MESSIAH! 
Abbé Simon J. Pellegrin (1663-1745) 

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, A
nd 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 Christ, whom nations sigh for, 
Whom priest and prophet long foretold, 
Come 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.
