For Advent. Based on the medieval O Antiphons.


Savior, come and be with us.
Set us free. We wait for you.
Wisdom, come and make things right.
Come and stay. Teach us your way.
In power come, as Moses saw.
You showed your might and gave your law.
Savior, come.

Jesse’s branch, freedom bring.
Save us now. Bring power over death.
David’s key, open our home.
Protect our path, and end misery.
Dayspring, come. Bring us cheer.
Disperse the clouds and the shadow of death.
Savior, come.

Cornerstone, bind our hearts.
End our strife. Rule in your peace.
Emmanuel, God with us,
Set us free. We wait for you.
Savior, come.
