O Sapientia (O Wisdom)

O Antiphon text:

O Wisdom,
who came from the mouth of the Most High,
reaching from end to end
and ordering all things mightily and sweetly: 
come, and teach us prudence.


O Wisdom,
Who took on human flesh
And was born in time,
Yet the ever timeless Word.
You, the sinless One,
Took our sins upon You,
And nailed them to your Cross.
Restoring humanity to its original image,
And making it once more
Sons and daughters of God.
Teach us to live
That we may reflect
Your Spirit
Shining forth from within our hearts.

Scripture texts for further reflection:

Wisdom 8:1,
Isaiah 11:2-3 and 28:29
Proverbs 8:1-36
John 1:1-5
