- O Emmanuel, Rex et legifer noster,
- exspectatio Gentium, et Salvator earum:
- veni ad salvandum nos, Domine, Deus noster.
- O Immanuel, you are our king and judge,
- the One whom the peoples await and their Saviour.
- O come and save us, Lord, our God.
"The Lord himself, therefore, will give you a sign. It is this: the maiden is with child and shall give birth to a son whom she will call Immanuel." (Isaiah 7:14)
Immanuel means "God is with us".
