Oh Righteous Branch is from A Seed, A Sunrise a collection of Advent themed songs by Caroline Cobb.
The lyrics reflect portions of Scripture from Isaiah, Second Samuel, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Malachi.

This video features the studio recording of the song.

The lyrics:
1
Oh righteous branch from Jesse’s root
Please come and bring your kingdom
The lion dwelling with the lamb
Bring peace and life and freedom
2
Oh Son of David come to rule
And reign in us forever
Come write your law upon our hearts
And keep us like a shepherd
Refrain:
Hallelujah, Jesus we wait for you
Hallelujah, Jesus come soon come soon
3
Messiah come, your Spirit give
Turn stony hearts to flesh
Redeem us from captivity
The power of sin and death
Refrain:
Hallelujah, Jesus we wait for you
Hallelujah, Jesus come soon come soon
Jesus, come soon, come soon
4
At last, at last the morning comes
With healing in its wings
We’ll leap like calves loosed from their stalls
For you have done great things
Yes, you have done great things!
Refrain 2x:
Hallelujah, Jesus we wait for you
Hallelujah, Jesus come soon come soon!
Tag: Jesus, come soon, come soon.
