Third Sunday of The Nativity Fast

O come, O come, Thou Lord of might,
Who to Thy tribes on Sinai’s height
In ancient times didst give the law
In cloud and majesty, and awe.

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse’s stem,
From every foe deliver them
That trust Thy mighty power to save
And give them victory o’er the grave.

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