O Emmanuel

Today’s Antiphon, the last, sums up all six that have gone before it, and the whole meaning of the festival to come: the Christ Child truly is Emmanuel, God with us. 

In the person of Jesus Christ, God is with us always and everywhere.  Now we look forward to his coming at Christmass.

O Emmanuel,

our King and Lawgiver,

the one whom the peoples await,

and their Saviour:

Come to save us,

O Lord our God.
