O Key of David, Come
Isaiah 62:10 Go through, go through the gates, prepare the way for the people; build up, build up the highway, clear it of stones, lift up an ensign over the peoples.
O Key of David, Come~
Unlock the gates
so we may go through:
the gates of fear,
the gates of injustice,
the gates of prejudice,
the gates of judgment,
and come out the other side.
Open with your key of love
our minds, our spirits, our hearts,
so that we might prepare a way,
clearing the obstacles
that block the vision
of your Dominion here on earth.
O Come, O Come, Emmanuel – Ed. Susi Kawolics – O Key of David
O come, O Key of David, open wide
our locked-down hearts so peace can come inside.
Release the hold of grudges of our past
and tenderly toward hope lead us at last.
Rejoice! Rejoice! O Key of David, free
our hearts from hatred that they healed might be.
O Come, O Come, Emmanuel – Traditional – O Key of David
O come, O Key of David, come,
And open wide our heav’nly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel!
