O Oriens (O Dayspring)

O Antiphon text:

O Dayspring,
Brightness of the everlasting light,
Sun of justice,
come to give light to them
that sit in darkness
and in the shadow of death.


O Dawn of Eternal Day,
Who most desire
To drive darkness and sin away.
In Thy radiance,
of Lord of Light,
Give to your people your gift of sight.
By Your wondrous birth may we,
evermore be made like unto Thee.
Come, O Dawn of Eternal Day,
and shine on all
in darkness and in death's dread thrall.

Additional texts for reflection:

Isaiah 9:1; 58:8; 60:18-20
Malachi 4:2
Luke 1:78-79
John 8:12
Revelation 22:16
