O Clavis David

O Schlüssel Davids (O Clavis David) - the fourth of Arvo Pärt's  Advent Magnificat anthems, 
again performed by the Jauna Muzika Choir and Vaclovas Augustinas

O Clavis David

O Clavis David, et sceptrum domus Israel; 
qui aperis, et nemo claudit; claudis, et nemo aperit: 
veni, et educ vinctum de domo carceris, 
sedentem in tenebris, et umbra mortis.

O Key of David and Sceptre of the house of Israel, 
Who dost open and no man doth shut, who dost shut and no man doth open, 
come and bring forth from his prison-house the captive 
that sitteth in darkness and in the shadow of death.
