Advent Prayer (Dec 22)

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 sixth of the seven:

O King whom all the peoples desire, you are the cornerstone which makes all one.

O come and save man whom you made from clay.
