O Come, Divine Messiah

O come, Divine Messiah,
The world in silence waits the day
When hope shall sing its triumph,
And sadness flee away.

Chorus
Sweet Savior haste;
Come, come to earth;
Dispel the night and show Thy face,
And bid us hail the dawn of grace;
O come, Divine Messiah,
The world in silence waits the day
When hope shall sing of triumph,
And sadness flee away.

Thou’lt come in peace and meekness,
And lowly will Thy cradle be;
All veiled in human weakness,
Thy majesty we’ll see.

O Thou whom nations sighed for,
Whom seer and prophet long foretold,
Wilt break the captive’s fetters,
Redeem the long-lost fold.

Brothers of the Christian Schools, The De La Salle Hymnal (New York: La Salle Bureau, 1913).
