The antiphon for yesterday was:
And for today,
O radix Iesse, qui stas in signum populorum, super quem continebunt reges os suum, quem gentes deprecabuntur: veni ad liberandum nos, iam noli tardare.
O Adonai, and Great General of the House of Israel, who to Moses in the burning flame of the thorn-bush appeared, and on Sinai did give the Law: come and redeem us with arm outstretched.
O root of Jesse, who stands a sign amidst the peoples, before whom will be shut the mouths of kings, to whom the gentiles make their earnest prayer: come and liberate us, and no longer tarry.
