Antiphons for Advent

December 19 (sung at the Magnificat during vespers/evensong)

O RADIX Iesse, qui stas in signum populorum, super quem continebunt reges os suum, quem gentes deprecabuntur: veni ad liberandum nos, iam noli tardare.

O Root of Jesse, who stand as a sign for the peoples, the kings of the earth are silent before you and the nations invoke you: come to free us, do not delay.
