Sunday,  Antiphon # 4 –  O Key of David

I drove home on the Ohio turnpike from 3 days renewing c. 40 year friendships in Pittsburgh.    Its time to settle into the last 4 days of advent here on campus.

O Antiphon #4   O Clavis David – O Key of David

“O Key of David,
and scepter of the house of Israel,
you open and no one closes,
you close and no one opens

Come and lead us who sit bound with chains in the prison house,
sitting in darkness and the shadow of death.”

Key of David

Today’s Post:  “O Key of David”

To listen to the Antiphon sung in Gregorian Chant
