O Radix

O Root of Jesse, who stand as a sign for the peoples (Isaiah 11:10),
the kings of the earth are silent before you (Isaiah 52:15) and the nations invoke you:
come to free us, do not delay (Habakkuk 2:3).

O RADIX Iesse, qui stas in signum populorum,
super quem continebunt reges os suum, quem gentes deprecabuntur:
veni ad liberandum nos, iam noli tardare.

I love all this Latin... it's so beautiful, even though I don't know Latin (but I know Spanish and a bit of Romanian, which have mucho to do with Latin...)...
Anyway, so grateful for you!
