An explanation of what these Antiphons are, the original Latin, and a more poetic English translation can be found in a previous post – O Come, O Come Emmanuel (link below). The official translation used in the Liturgy of the Hours in United States is used here.

O Lord (Exodus 3:2, Exodus 20)

O sacred Lord of ancient Israel, who showed yourself to Moses in the burning bush, who gave him the holy law on Sinai mountain: come, stretch out your mighty hand to set us free.

O Come, O Come, thou Lord of might,
Who to Thy tribes on Sinai’s height,
In ancient times didst give the law,
In cloud and majesty, and awe.
