Listen at Christmas: BYU Vocal Point

vocalpoint-comVocal Point, a men’s a cappella group from Brigham Young University, has a nice recording of “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” from their Christmas album, He is Born. Watching the video may make you cold, but the actual music should warm you right up.
 

 
Lyrics for this version are these:

O Come, O come Emmanuel
and ransom captive Israel
that mourns in lowly exile here
until the son of God appear

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

O Come, thou king of David, come
and open wide our heavenly home
make safe the way that leads to thee
and close the path to misery

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

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
