O Sapientia

Although many have been singing O Come, O Come, Emmanuel for several weeks already, the O antiphons which this hymn contains don't start until today. Here's the text of the first, assigned to Dec. 17:

O Sapientia, quae exore Altissimi prodisti, attingens a fine usque ad finem, fortiter suaviter disponensque omnia: veni ad docendum nos viam prudentiae.

O Wisdom, which camest out of the mouth of the most High, and reachest from one end to another, mightily and sweetly ordering all things: Come and teach us the way of prudence.

The chant can be found here, though it's a bit different than the one I'm accustomed to.
