Advent Antiphons: Day 4

Advent antiphon IV (Dec. 20)

O Key of David and sceptre of Israel,
what You open, no one can close again;
what You close, no one can open.
O come to lead the captive from prison;
free those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death.

(verse) O come, Thou Key of David, come,
and open wide our heav'nly home;
make safe the way that leads on high,
and close the path to misery:

(chorus) Rejoice! Rejoice! Immanuel
shall come to thee, O Israel.
