V. Drop down dew from above, ye heavens, and let the clouds rain the Just One; let the earth be opened and bud forth a Savior. (Isa. 14:8)
R. Come let us adore our Lord and King Who is about to come to us!

V. Rejoice, O daughter of Sion, and be jubilantly glad, O daughter of Israel. Behold, thy Lord comes, and in His day a great light shall arise; the mountains shall drop down sweetness and the hills shall flow with milk and honey, for the Great Prophet shall come, and He shall renew Jerusalem. (Roman Breviary)

R. Come, let us adore Our Lord and King, Who is about to come to us!

V. Behold, thy God comes, the Man of the House of David, to sit upon the throne; and you shall see and your heart shall rejoice.

V. Behold, the Lord, our Protector, comes, the Holy One of Israel, having on His head the regal crown, and He shall rule from sea to sea, and from the river to the ends of the earth. (Apoc. 14:14; Ps. 72:8)

R. Come let us adore Our Lord and King, Who is about to come to us!

Daily Hymn -- "En Clara Vox Redarguit":

Hark, a joyful voice is thrilling, and each dim and winding way
Of the ancient temple filling, dreams depart, for it is day.

Christ is coming; from thy bed, earthbound soul, awake and spring;
With the sun new-risen to shed health on human suffering.

Lo, to grant a pardon free, comes a willing Lamb from Heaven;
Sad and tearful, hasten we, one and all, to be forgiven.

Once again He comes in light girding earth with fear and woe;
Lord, be Thou our loving might, from our guilt and ghostly foe.

To the Father and the Son, and the Spirit, Who in Heaven
Ever witness, Three in One, praise on earth be ever given. Amen.

V. Our forerunner Jesus, the Lamb undefiled, has entered the Holy of Holies for us, having become a High Priest forever according to the order of Melchisedech... He is King of Justice... having neither beginning of days nor end of life. (Heb. 6:20)

R. Behold, the King will come, the Lord of the earth, and He will take away the yoke of our captivity.

V. O Wisdom, Who didst proceed from the mouth of the Most High, reaching from end to end, and ordering all things mightily and sweetly: Come and teach us the way of prudence!

R. O Adonai, and Leader of the House of Israel, Who didst appear to Moses in the flame of the burning bush, and didst give him the Law on Sinai: come and redeem us with an outstretched arm!

Canticle:

V. Give praise, O heavens, and rejoice, O earth and mountains; give praise with jubilation.
R. The mountains shall break forth in gladness and the hills in justice.

V. For the Lord will come and will have mercy on the poor.
R. Drop down dew from above, ye heavens, and let the clouds rain the Just One; let the earth be opened and bud forth a Savior.

V. Remember us, O Lord, and visit us with Thy salvation. Show us, O Lord, Thy mercy, and grant us Thy salvation.
R. Send us, O Lord, the Lamb, the Ruler of the earth, from the rock of the desert, to the mount of the daughter of Sion.

V. Come to save us, O Lord, God of hosts; show us Thy countenance and we shall be saved.
R. Come, O Lord, visit us in Thy peace, that we may rejoice before Thee with a perfect heart.

V. That we may know, O God, Thy way upon earth; Thy salvation in all nations.
R. Arouse Thy might, O Lord, and come to save us.

V. Come, O Lord, and do not delay; undo the transgressions of Thy people!
R. Oh, that Thou wouldst rend the heavens and come down.

V. The mountains would melt away at Thy Presence.
R. Come and show us Thy countenance, O Lord, Who reignest over the Cherubim.

V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, forever, unto ages of ages. Amen.

Let us Pray:

O God, Who dost gladden us by the yearly expectation of our Redemption, grant that we who receive Thine only-begotten Son as our Redeemer, may also, without fear, behold Him coming as our Judge, the same our Lord Jesus Christ, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, One God, forever, unto ages of ages. Amen.
