Oh ven, oh ven, Rey Emanuel

The 1978 Himnário Bautista contains (#54) a reasonably good four-stanza Spanish version of "O come, O come Emmanuel":

  1. ¡Oh, ven! ¡oh ven, Rey E--manuel!
    Rescata ya a I--srael,
    Que llora en su deso-lación
    Y espera su libe--ración.
         Vendra, vendra, Rey E--manuel,
         Alégrate, oh I--srael.
  2. Sabiduría ce--lestial,
    Al mundi hoy ven a-- morar;
    Corrígenos y ha-znos ver
    En ti lo que pode--mos ser.
         Vendra, vendra, Rey E--manuel,
         Alégrate, oh I--srael.
  3. Anhelo de los pue--blos, ven;
    En ti podremos pa--z tener;
    De crueles guerras lí-branos,
    Y reine sobera--no Dios.
         Vendra, vendra, Rey E--manuel,
         Alégrate, oh I--srael.
  4. Ven tú, oh Hijo [o Clave] de-- David,
    Tu trono estable--ce aquí:
    Destruye el pode-r de mal.
    ¡Visítanos, Rey ce--lestial!
         Vendra, vendra, Rey E--manuel,
         Alégrate, oh I--srael.

But what I'm looking for is the full seven stanzas, so it can be paired with the great O Antiphons on which it was modeled. Can anyone point me to a seven-stanza version in Spanish, or supply suitable substitutes for the three missing ones (Oriens, Adonai and Radix)?
