Advent 2012 : Day 20

O Oriens

O you planets, on your sure

Orbits – set at his command – now

rolling into rare alignment;

in unison proclaim the news

entrusted to your care:

now is the time: earth’s

saviour is revealed!

O Oriens

O Morning Star,

splendour of light eternal and sun of righteousness:

Come and enlighten those who dwell in darkness

and the shadow of death.
