O Root of Jesse who stands as the ensign of the people,

before whom kings shall not open their lips, to whom the nations shall pray;
come and deliver us, tarry now no more.

O come, thou Root of Jesse’s tree,
an ensign of thy people be;
before thee rulers silent fall;
all peoples on thy mercy call.

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