'O come, O come, Emmanuel!'
For the 'beginning of the end' of Advent:
The English Hymnal translation (which omits today's O Sapientia antiphon!) of Veni, veni, Emmanuel, sung here by the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge conducted by Timothy Brown.
O Sapientia, quae ex ore Altissimi prodiisti,
attingens a fine usque ad finem,
fortiter suaviterque disponens omnia:
veni ad docendum nos viam prudentiae.
O Wisdom, coming forth from the mouth of the Most High,
reaching from one end to the other,
mightily and sweetly ordering all things:
Come and teach us the way of prudence.
