December 19: O Root of Jesse, standing as a sign among the peoples; before you kings will keep silence, to you the nations will make their prayer: Come and deliver us, and delay no longer.
"A shoot shall come out from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his root." Is. 11: 1
"On that day the root of Jesse shall stand as a signal to the peoples; the nations shall inquire of him, and his dwelling shall be glorious." Is. 11: 10
♫ O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyranny
From depths of Hell Thy people save
And give them victory o'er the grave. (Refrain)
