The O Antiphons

The "O Antiphons" are several antiphons that are recited or chanted at Vespers during the Advent Season - more specifically during the Octave before Christmas.

Going back to the river in the afternoon, the majestic and breathtaking scene made me think of them.

O Wisdom!
O Holy Word of God!

You govern all of creation

with your strong

yet gentle and tender care.

Come and show your people

the way to salvation!
