‘O’ Antiphon for December 20

O Key of David and scepter of the house of Israel, You open and no one can close, You close and no one can open:
           Come and rescue the prisoners who are in darkness and the shadow of death.

“O come, Thou Key of David, come,/And open wide our heav’nly home;/Make safe the way that leads on high,/And close the path to misery” (LSB 357:5).

Rejoice!  Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel!

Crux Christi clavis Paradisi,
Pr. Timothy Winterstein
