December 18th: O Adonai

O Adonai, et Dux domus Israel, qui Moysi in igne flammae rubi apparuisti, et ei in Sina legem dedisti: veni ad redimendum nos in brachio extento.

O Lord and Ruler of the house of Israel, who appeared to Moses in the fire of the burning bush, and on mount Sinai gave him the Law:  Come, and with outstretched arm redeem us!


  1. Oh, so beautiful ... I was a bit afraid you weren't going to post this, Mrs. Beazly. I had to wait quite a long time ... 28 minutes past my chosen bedtime! Thanks again.

  2. The O Antiphons will be posted each evening at 7 p.m. eastern time. I was inspired by Mrs. P.'s posting of them on Catholog last year, and by the beauty of Healey Willan's arrangement of them.
