O Wisdom,
Which came 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.

O come, thou Wisdom from on high,
Who orderest all things mightily;
To us the path of knowledge show,
And teach us in her ways to go.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

O Adonai,
and Leader of the house of Israel,
who appearedst in the bust to Moses in a flame of fire,
and gavest him the Law in Sinai:
Come, and deliver us with an outstretched arm.

________________



O come, Adonai, Lord of might,
Who to Thy tribes, on Sinai's height,
In ancient times didst give the law
In cloud and majesty and awe.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.
