O Radix Jesse

O Radix Jesse, qui stas in signum populorum, super quem continebunt reges os suum, quem gentes deprecabuntur: veni ad liberandum nos, jam noli tardare.
O Root of Jesse, which standest as a sign to the peoples, at whom kings shall shut their mouths, whom the gentiles shall beseech, come to deliver us, delay thou not!

(By the way, the recordings of the O Antiphons which I have used these last few days are from the youtube channel of the English Dominican studentate; you can check out the whole channel for a lot of interesting pieces of the Dominican liturgy, inter alia, and also their blog, Godzdogz.)
