O Adonai

Magnificat antiphon for December 18, at the evening Office

O Adonaï, et dux domus Israël, qui Moyse in igne flammae rubi apparuisti, et ei in Sina legem dedisti: veni ad redimendum nos in brachio extento.

O Mighty Lord and leader of the house of Israel, who appeared to Moses in the burning bush, and on Sinai gave him the law: Come to redeem us with outstretched arm.

Magnificat
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior;*
for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed:*
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear him*
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm,*
he has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,*
and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,*
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel,*
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
The promise he made to our fathers,*
to Abraham and his children for ever.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:*
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

Ant.O Mighty Lord and leader of the house of Israel, who appeared to Moses in the burning bush, and on Sinai gave him the law: Come to redeem us with outstretched arm.
