19 December: Isaias xi. 10.

O Radix Jesse,
qui stas in signum populorum,
super quem continebunt reges os suum,
quem Gentes deprecabuntur:
veni ad liberandum nos,
jam noli tardare.

O Root of Jesse,
who standest for an ensign of the people,
before whom kings shall keep silence,
and unto whom the Gentiles shall make their supplication:
come to deliver us, 
and tarry not.

V. Rorate.

"Rorate caeli desuper, et nubes pluant justium . . ."
"Ye heavens, drop down from above, and let the clouds rain down the Just One."
