O Antiphon for December 19

O Root of Jesse, standing as an ensign before the peoples, before whom all kings are mute, to whom the nations will do homage: Come quickly to deliver us!

O Come thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyranny,
From depths of hell Thy people save
And give them vict'ry o'er the grave:
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to Thee,
O Israel!
