O Dawn of the East, brightness of the light eternal and Sun of Justice: Come, and enlighten them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death.
O come, Thou Day-spring, come and cheer Our spirits by Thine advent here; Disperse the gloomy clouds of night, And death’s dark shadows put to flight. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

I was going to write a regular post, too, but ran out of time! I will tomorrow! :)
