O Emmanuel

O Emmanuel (Isa 7:14; 8:8), our King and Lawgiver (Gen 49:10; cf. Ezek 21:32), the Expected of the nations and their Savior (Isa 33:22):  Come, and save us, O Lord our God.

O Adonai

O Adonai (December 18)

Adonai

O Adonai or Lord and Ruler (Exod 6:13) and Ruler of the house of Israel (Matt 2:6), you appeared to Moses in the fire of the burning bush (Exod 3:2), and on Mount Sinai gave him your Law (Exod 20). Come, and with outstretched arm redeem us (Jer 32:21).
