Apartment Advent

I wrapped all the gifts. Put up the lights & opened my nativity set for the first time.

But the cats are meowing and mice stirring.

Maranatha!

Veni, veni Emmanuel;
Captivum solve Israel,
Qui gemit in exilio,
Privatus Dei Filio.
Gaude! Gaude! Emmanuel,
Nascetur pro te, Israel!
Veni, veni, O Oriens;
Solare nos adveniens,
Noctis depelle nebulas,
Dirasque noctis tenebras.

Gaude! Gaude! Emmanuel,

Nascetur pro te, Israel!

 

Veni, Clavis Davidica!
Regna reclude caelica; 
Fac iter tutum superum,
Et claude vias inferum.

Gaude! Gaude! Emmanuel,

Nascetur pro te, Israel!

 

Veni, veni Adonai!
Qui populo in Sinai,
Legem dedisti vertice,
In maiestate gloriae.

Gaude! Gaude! Emmanuel,

Nascetur pro te, Israel!
