O Emmanuel, King and Lawgiver,
You are yearned for by all nations
You are the Savior we have hopefully anticipated
O come Lord, and set us free.

Antiphon for December Twenty Second ~~~ O Rex Gentium~O King of All Nations ~~~

O King of all peoples, 
O Joy and desire of every human heart
O Cornerstone binding all people
Who you formed from clay
Come save us, Lord
Deliver us from conflict with one another
That we may live in peace.

Antiphon for December Twentieth ~~~O Clavis David~O Key of David~~~

O Key of David
You open the Gates of Heaven
God's Eternal Kingdom
What you open none can ever shut
What you shut none can ever open
We dwell in the shadow 
Of darkness and death 
Come and free our souls 
From the enslaving yoke 
Of deception and misery.

O Root of the stem of Jesse
You stand as a sign of God's love
For all His people
Kings are silenced in Your Presence
All nations bow down before You
Do not delay

Antiphon for December Eighteenth ~~~ O Adonai~O Sacred Lord~~~

O Adonai, O Sacred  Lord, 
Mighty and Powerful 
Leader of the House of Israel
On Mount Saini
 In the fire of the burning bush
You appeared to Moses
You gave him the Law 
Come redeem us with arms outstretched.
