O Again 5. O Oriens (my favorite) Oriens. O Oriens.* Our Star in the East today rises as far South as she goes. Tomorrow she’ll cross the line to lengthen our days. O Oriens, O Morning Star— Come and enlighten. Sun of Fiery Dawnings— Sun of Rooting Bulbs— Sun of Joyful openings— O Oriens, come. *(Just say it. It does nice things in the mouth.)
loveLoveLOVE this. Yes, I do.
I just realized I’m a day ahead. I may have to do one to make up for it, if I can think of a word. O Silliass?
And as I read these, I’m reading an example of the Antiphons from Baylor University. And sometimes finding wonderful examples of them sung in chant on YouTube. And yes, I’m ready for some Glorious Dayspring!
