Veni, Veni, Emmanuel (Oh Come, Oh Come, Emmanuel)

"Veni Veni Emmanuel" (Oh Come, Oh Come, Emmanuel" in English) is one of the most solemn Advent hymns. The melody may perhaps be a old Jewish-Christian Hanuka liturgy chant from the 5th century. It is believed that the final form of the traditional music stems from a 15th Century French processional for Franciscan nuns, but it may also have 8th Century Gregorian origins. . The text is based on the biblical prophecy from Isaiah 7:14 that states that God will give Israel a sign that will be called "Emmanuel" meaning "God With Us".
