19th December – O Radix Jesse

O Root of Jesse, banner by Turvey Abbey O Root of Jesse, standing as a sign among the peoples;
before you kings will shut their mouths,
to you the nations will make their prayer:
Come and deliver us, and delay no longer.

– cf. Isaiah 11.10, 45.14, 52.15; Romans 15.12

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan’s tyranny;
From depths of hell Thy people save,
And give them victory over the grave.

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