Last Week Antiphons Day 6

Last Week Antiphons
6th day Dec.22nd

Isaiah. 60:1-3
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people:
but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

O Desire of the Nations enlighten our darkness that we might go forth
As your light in a weary world, freeing the oppressed, comforting the mourning,
clothing the naked, loving the other, and spreading your Gospel of Peace.

O come, Desire of nations,
bind In one the hearts of all mankind;
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease,
And be Thyself our King of Peace.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel
