During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Tune: [O Wisdom, which camest out of the mouth of the most high]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 O Sapientia:
O Wisdom, which camest out of the mouth of the most High,
and reaches from one end to another, mightily,
and sweetly ordering all things:
Come and teach us the way of prudence.

2 O Adonai:
O Adonai, and Leader of the house of Israel,
who appearedst in the Bush to Moses in a flame of fire,
and gavest him the law in Sinai:
Come and deliver us with an out-stretched arm.

3 O radix Jesse:
O Root of Jesse, which standest for an ensign of the people,
at whom kings shall shut their mouths,
to whom the Gentiles shall seek:
Come and deliver us, and tarry not.

4 O Clavis David:
O Key of David, and sceptre of the house of Israel:
that openest, and no man shutteth;
and shuttest and no man openeth:
Come, and bring the prisoner out of the prison-house,
and him that sitteth in darkness, and the shadow of death.

5 O oriens:
O Dayspring, Brightness of Light everlasting,
and Sun of righteousness:
Come, and enlighten him that sitteth in darkness,
and the shadow of death.

6 O Rex Gentium:
O King of the nations, and their Desire;
the Cornerstone, who makest both one:
Come, and save mankind, whom thou formedst of clay.

7 O Emmanuel:
O Emmanuel, our King and Lawgiver,
the Desire of all nations, and their Salvation:
Come and save us O Lord, our God.

8 O Virgo Virginum:
O Virgin of virgins, how shall this be?
for neither before thee was any like thee,
nor shall there be after.
Daughters of Jerusalem, why marvel ye at me?
The thing which ye behold is a divine mystery.
