The O Antiphons are an ancient Christian prayer used at Vespers on the last seven days of Advent. Each verse begins with the o, invoking the name of Christ under different titles:

  • O Sapientia (O Wisdom)
  • O Adonai (O Lord)
  • O Radix Jesse (O Root of Jesse)
  • O Clavis David (O Key of David)
  • O Oriens (O Dayspring)
  • O Rex Gentium (O King of the Nations)
  • O Emmanuel (O With Us is God)
