O Radix Jesse

The third of the O Antiphons is O Radix Jesse (O Root of Jesse), another of the great names of Messiah taken from Isaiah and applied to Jesus.

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