17th of December ~ O Sapientia : O Wisdom.
"O Wisdom, you came forth from the mouth of the Most High, and reach from one end of the earth to the other, mightily and sweetly ordering all things: come and teach us the way of prudence."
"O Adonai, ruler of the house of Israel, you appeared to Moses in the fire of the burning bush; on Mount Sinai you gave him your law: with outstretched arm, come and redeem us."
"O Root of Jesse, you stand as an ensign to the people; before you kings shall keep silence, all nations bow in worship: come and save us, and do not delay."
20th of December ~ O Clavis David : O Key of David
"O Key of David, and scepter of the house of Israel; you open and no one closes; you close and no one opens: come and deliver us from the chains of prison, we who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death."
21st of December ~ O Oriens : O Rising Dawn.
"O King of nations, and their desire, you are the cornerstone that binds two into one: come and save the creatures whom you have fashioned from clay."
