O Antiphons - O Radix Jesse

O Root of Jesse, Who stands for an ensign of the people, before Whom kings shall keep silence and unto Whom the Gentiles shall make supplications: Come to deliver us, and tarry not.

O Come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyrrany;
From depths of hell Thy people save,
And give them victory o'er the grave.
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.
