O Radix Jesse

Another of Arvo Pärt's  Advent Magnificat anthems, O Sproß Aus Isais Wurzel,
performed by the Jauna Muzika Choir and Vaclovas Augustinas

O Radix Jesse

O Radix Jesse, qui stas in signum populorum,
super quem continebunt reges os suum, 
quem Gentes deprecabuntur: 
veni ad liberandum nos, jam noli tardare.

O Root of Jesse, Who dost stand for an ensign of the people, 
before Whom kings shall keep silence, 
and unto Whom the Gentiles shall make their supplication: 
come to deliver us, and tarry not.
