Advent 21: O Clavis David

O Key of David, O royal Power of Israel controlling at your will the gate of Heaven: Come, break down the prison walls of death for those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death; and lead your captive people into freedom.

O come, thou Key of David, come
and open wide our heavenly home
Bid envy, strife and quarrels cease
And be thouself our King of Peace
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.
