Advent Prayer (Dec 19)

O antiphonsAn earlier post provided an introduction to the “O Antiphons”, prayers used in Advent’s final week, dating back to the eighth century.

Here is tonight’s prayer, the third of the seven:

O stock of Jesse, you stand as a signal for the nations; kings fall silent before you whom the peoples acclaim.

O come to deliver us, and  do not delay.
