O Oriens

Today’s O Antiphon is O Oriens (O Rising Sun), sometimes translated as O Morning Star. This title of the Messiah is taken from Isaiah 9:2: The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light, those who lived in a land of deep darkness - on them light has shined.

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