“O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” Rewritten for Aleppo

O come, O come, Emmanuel
Protect all those in Aleppo
Who live in terror and fear their enemies
That overwhelm with death and genocide.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Aleppo.

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Aleppo from Evil’s tyranny
From depths of Hell all people save
And give them victory; keep them from the grave
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Aleppo.

O come, Thou Day-Spring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death’s dark shadows put to flight.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Aleppo.

O come, Thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our countries, hearts and homes;
Make safe the way for all refugees,
And close the path to misery.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Aleppo.

O come, O come, Thou Lord of might,
Bring justice, safety, shelter and peace;
Let children live in and joy and freedom,
Hear their parents’ prayers and let Love truly win.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Aleppo.
