O Adonay and O Radix Jesse

I forgot to post yesterday’s O antiphon devotion, so it is here.

O Lord and Ruler of the house of Israel, who didst appear to Moses in a burning bush, and didst give him the law on Sinai: Come and deliver us with an outstretched arm.

J.S. Bach (1685-1750), Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland, BWV 699

And today’s, O Radix Jesse.

O Root of Jesse, who standest for an ensign to the peoples, at whom kings shall shut their mouths, and to whom the Gentiles shall pray: Come and deliver us, and do not delay.

Charles Hubert Hastings Parry (1848-1918), Chorale prelude on Christe, Redemptor Omnium.
