Dec 18 O Adonai

The Great Day at Sinai, by Yitzhak ben Yehuda

O Adonai, et Dux domus Israel,
qui Moysi in igne flammae rubi apparuisti,
et ei in Sina legem dedisti:
veni ad redimendum nos in brachio extento.

Moses Before the Burning Bush, Domenico Feti (1613)

O Adonai, and leader of the House of Israel,
who appeared to Moses in the fire of the burning bush
and gave him the law on Sinai:
Come to redeem us with an outstretched arm.

Veni, veni, Adonai,

qui populo in Sinailegem

dedisti verticein maiestate gloriae

Gaude! Gaude! Emmanuel,

nascetur pro te Israel!

Adonai by Daniel Gautier
