O Key of David and scepter of the House of Israel,
thou that opens and no man shuts, who shuts and no man opens;
come and lead the captive from prison, sitting in darkness and in the shadow of death.

O come, thou Key of David, come,
and open wide our heavenly home;
make safe the way that leads on high,
and close the path to misery.

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