O Antiphons - O Rex Gentium

O King of the Gentiles and their desired One, the Cornerstone that makes both one: Come, and deliver man, whom Thou formed out of the dust of the earth.

O come, Desire of nations, bind
In one the hearts of all mankind;

Bid Thou our sad divisions cease,

And be Thyself our King of Peace.

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