O Antiphons – Welcoming the Miracle of Christmas

By Stephen A. Macchia

 

Advent waiting, watching and wondering

Embracing the coming of the Christ child

Prophetically, humbly and gloriously

 

O come, O come, Emmanuel!

 

Rod of Jesse, freeing us from Satan’s tyranny victoriously

Dayspring, dispersing gloomy clouds with cheers on high

Key of David, opening wide the path to our heavenly home

Lord of Might, holding firm the Law in majesty and awe

Wisdom from on high, inviting order on the way to knowledge

Desire of nations, binding all people in one heart and mind

 

Our hymn of praise exalts the heavens and blankets the earth

O come, O come, Emmanuel…your prophets foretold the truth

Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace

 

Emmanuel has come, is with us now, and will come again once more!
