O Morning Star

splendor lucis aeternae, et sol justitiae:
veni, et illumina sedentes in tenebris, et umbra mortis.

O Morning Star,
splendour of light eternal and sun of righteousness:
Come and enlighten those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death.

(ref. Isaiah 9:2; Isaiah 60:1-2, Malachi 4:2)


  1. Even so. . .

    And of course, even as Advent looks back to Christ's first coming, in the flesh, it also looks forward to His second coming in Glory. . .
