Wisdom, O holy Word of God, you govern all creation with your strong yet tender care;
R. Come and show
your people the way to salvation.
O sacred Lord of
ancient Israel, you showed yourself to Moses in the burning bush and gave him the holy law
on Mt. Sinai;
R. Come, stretch
out your mighty hand to set us free.
O Flower of
Jesse's stem, you have been raised up as a sign for all peoples; kings stand silent in
your presence; the nations bow down in worship before you;
R. Come, let
nothing deter you from coming to our aid.
O Key of David, O
royal Power of Israel, you control at your will the gate of heaven;
break down the prison walls of death for those who dwell in darkness and the
shadow of death; and lead your captive people into freedom.
Radiant Dawn, splendor of eternal light, sun of justice;
R. Come, shine on
those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death.
O King of the
nations, the only joy of every heart; O Keystone of the mighty arch of humankind;
R. Come, Come and
save the creatures you fashioned from the dust.
O Emmanuel, king
and lawgiver, desire of the nations, Savior of all people;
R. Come and set us
free, Lord our God.
The Spirit and the
Bride say: Come!
R. Amen, Lord
Jesus, come soon!
