‘O’ Antiphon for December 19

December 19

O Root of Jesse, standing as an ensign before the peoples, before whom all kings are mute, to whom the nations will do homage:
          Come quickly to deliver us.

“O come, Thou Branch of Jesse’s tree,/Free them from Satan’s tyranny/That trust Thy mighty pow’r to save,/And give them vict’ry o’er the grave” (LSB 357:4).

Rejoice!  Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel!

Pr. Timothy Winterstein
