Scripture verse: Matthew 5:17-20
Although its true origin is shrouded in mystery due to various renditions, the song, O Come, O Come, Emmanuel in its current form is dated to 1710 or thereabouts. A hymn of Advent, it is attached to the Magnificat at Vespers, for the final days of the Christmas season (December 17 – 23). The tune developed separately from the words, coming from 15th century France.
The song is sometimes referred to as the O Antiphons because each verse begins with the interjection "O". Each antiphon is a name of Christ, one of his attributes mentioned in Scripture.
O Key of David
O King Of The Nations
