Comments
Translation of "Veni, veni, Emanuel", a Latin combination of antiphons by unknown author from possibly the 12th century, though the antiphons may be of 8th century origin.

Music, which was originally a processional melody for French Franciscan nuns, was added in the 15th century, but may also have 8th century origins.

Published in "Mediaeval Hymns and Sequences" as "Draw Nigh, Draw Nigh, Emmanuel" and later altered by compilers to its current title.
