O Emmanuel

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 Emmanuel (Isaiah 7:14; 33:22 )

O Emmanuel, king and lawgiver, desire of the nations, Savior of all people, come and set us free, Lord our God.

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here,
Until the Son of God appear.
