O Antiphons – Day 2, 12/18

 

 

o-come-o-come-emmanuel

O come, O Wisdom from on high, who orders all things mightily

 

To us the path of knowledge show, and teach us in her ways to go.

 

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

 

The second “type” of Christ is as Wisdom, also predicated by Isaiah in chapter 11, “The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him – the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord – and He will delight in the fear of the Lord.”

 

We cry out to the Lord, “Come” – “Yes, come even more!” we pray. Come alongside us and abide “with us” and offer to us “wisdom” from on high, and teach us to walk the well ordered path of your will.

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel. Rejoice!
