LATIN: O Adonai, et Dux domus Israel, qui Moysi in igne flammae rubi apparuisti, et ei in Sina legem dedisti: veni ad redimendum nos in brachio extento..
ENGLISH: O Lord and Ruler the house of Israel, who appeared to Moses in the flame of the burning bush and gave him the law on Sinai: come, and redeem us with outstretched arms.
Jesus, as I await your coming, keep me mindful that you are an almighty Lord and ruler. As I anticipate your birth, help me to recognize the great humility and love with which you come to each of us — as a helpless baby in the manger, and under the appearance of bread and wine in the Eucharist. Amen.
