O Oriens

The fifth of the Great O Antiphons will be sung at vespers this evening. The fourth Sunday of Advent has no proper Magnificat antiphon at either first or second vespers, since the occurring O Antiphons take liturgical precedence:

O ORIENS, splendor lucis aeternae, et sol iustitiae: veni, et illumina sedentes in tenebris, et umbra mortis.

O DAY-SPRING, Brightness of light eternal, and Sun of Justice, come and enlighten them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death.
