O King of Nations
Advent Prayer

O Emmanuel

6a0120a4f88a1c970b0120a776b913970b Today would be a wonderful day to play the hymn O Come, O Come Emmanuel as a melodically prayerful summary of our preparation for Christmas and the spirit of the O Antiphons.

Many parishioners have brought their infant Jesus's from their mangers to be blessed, and the school children took home a bit of straw from the creche at church to place in the creche at home.

O Emmanuel, our king and our lawgiver,
the hope of the nations and their Saviour:
Come and save us, O Lord our God.
