O Radiant Dawn, Splendor of eternal light, sun of justice: come and shine on those who dwell in darkness and in the shadow of death.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.
O come, O come Emmanuel . . .
O-nly 1-more day, beloved!
O come, O come, thou Dayspring bright!
Pour on our souls thy healing light;
Dispel the long night’s lingering gloom,
And pierce the shadows of the tomb.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.
In the tender compassion of our God the dawn from on high shall break upon us, to shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, and to guide our feet into the way of peace. Lk_1:67-79
The Dayspring, the Radiant Dawn, the Morning Star, our Peace, our Light and our Salvation – Jesus!
A very blessed, hope-filled and happy Christmas to you, beloved!
