    a magnificient theology
    using ancient biblical imagery
    expressing the messianic hope of the OT
    (Old Testament)
    O come divine Messiah!
    December 17
    O Wisdom of our God Most High,
    guiding creation with power and love:
    come to teach us the path of knowledge!
    December 18
    O Leader of the House of Israel,
    giver of the Law to Moses on Sinai:
    come to rescue us with your mighty power!
    December 19
    O Root of Jesse’s stem,
    sign of God’s love for all his people:
    come to save us without delay!
    December 20
    O Key of David,
    opening the gates of God’s eternal Kingdom:
    come and free the prisoners of darkness!
    December 21
    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.
    December 22
    O King of all nations and keystone of the Church:
    come and save man, whom you formed from the dust!
    December 23
    O Emmanuel, our King and Giver of Law:
    come to save us, Lord our God!
