O Antiphons: 18 December | O Adonai (O Lord)

#OAntiphons: Listen to the sounds of Advent and meditate on scripture that relate to each antiphon. #OAdonai

Latin:

O Adonai, et Dux domus Israel,
qui Moysi in igne flammae rubi apparuisti,
et ei in Sina legem dedisti:
veni ad redimendum nos in brachio extento

English:

O Adonai, and leader of the the House of Israel,
who appeared to Moses in the fire of the burning bush
and gave him the law on Sinai:
Come and redeem us with an outstretched arm

[Verse 2] O Come O Come Emmanuel

O come, O come, Thou Lord of might
Who to Thy tribes, on Sinai’s height
In ancient times didst give the law
In cloud, and majesty and awe

Chorus in Hebrew:

Simchu, Simchu, Emmanuel
Yavo lachem b’nei Yisrael

Anitphon Chant: O Adonai

 

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel | Simchu, Simchu, Emmanuel

Isaiah had prophesied:

  • “[…] but with righteousness he shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth; he shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall kill the wicked. Righteousness shall be the belt around his waist, and faithfulness the belt around his loins.” Isaiah 11:4-5
  • “For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our ruler, the Lord is our king; he will save us.” Isaiah 33:22
