JOY---Christ is born anew in my heart
Emmanuel... HOPE of all people, I give thanks.
LOVE-- the greatest gift I can give You...
O Clavis David--O Key of David (Is. 9:6, 22:22): "O key of David and scepter of Israel, what you open no one else can close again; what you close no one can open. O come to lead the captive from prison; free those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death."
--from The Great "O" Antiphons of Advent
O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel!
--famed song is from a 12th century Latin text, translated into English by John Mason Neale in the mid-1800's.
Waiting for His coming...His peace...
LOVE & PEACE to you all!!
