O Adonai

18 Dec

O come, O come, Thou Lord of might,
Who to Thy tribes on Sinai’s height
In ancient times didst give the Law
In cloud and majesty and awe.

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

O Adonai and ruler of the house of Israel, who appeared to Moses in the burning bush and gave him the Law on Sinai:
     Come with an outstretched arm and redeem us.
