Tonight begins the first of the O Antiphons. An explanation of what these Antiphons are, the original Latin, and a more poetic English translation can be found here. The official translation used in the Liturgy of the Hours in United States is used here.
O Wisdom, O holy Word of God, you govern all creation with your strong yet tender care. Come and show your people the way to salvation.
O Come, O Wisdom from on high,
who orders all things mightily,
to us the path of knowledge show,
and teach us in her ways to go.
