O Emmanuel – O God with Us O Antiphon for December 23
O Emmanuel – O God with Us. What comfort those words bring if we stop to think about them. God with us.
O Emmanuel, Rex et legifer noster,
exspectatio Gentium, et Salvator earum:
veni ad salvandum nos, Domine, Deus noster.
O Emmanuel, our king and our lawgiver,
the hope of the nations and their Saviour:
Come and save us, O Lord our God.
Isaiah had prophesied:
“Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Look, the young woman is with child
and shall bear a son, and shall name him Immanuel.” Isaiah 7: 14
The hymn verse for today is:
O Emmanuel, our king and our Lord,
the anointed for the nations and
their | Savior.*
Come and save us, O | Lord our God.
The symbol used for O Emmanuel is a manger with a flowering rose. The rose is a Messianic Rose. With great joy and anticipation, we join the prophet in singing, O Come, Emmanuel – come and save us, O Lord, our God.
The collection of O Antiphon designs are simple ways to enhance a worship space. The banners may be hung from pillars as shown in the photo, or by some other way of your selection. The banners a simple to create for those who like to sew for their church. The banners are a great way of teaching for both young and old. Individuals, churches and pastors may have a great time doing their own study of these designs, prophecies, texts, and illustrations.
Wishing all great joy as we await the birth of Christ.
Soli Deo Gloria
