O Clavis David

The fourth antiphon for Advent.
O Clavis David, et sceptrum domus Israel;
qui aperis, et nemo claudit;
claudis, et nemo aperit:
veni, et educ vinctum de domo carceris,
sedentem in tenebris, et umbra mortis.
O Key of David and sceptre of the House of Israel;
you who open and no man shuts;
you who shut and no man opens:
Come and lead out from the house of bondage,
the prisoner who is sitting in darkness and the shadow of death.
