O Sapientia

Today we begin the great O antiphons in readiness for Christmas. These are sung before and after the Magnificat at Vespers. Today's is O Sapientia:

O Sapientia, quae ex ore Altissimi prodiisti,
attingens a fine usque ad finem,
fortiter suaviterque disponens omnia:
veni ad docendum nos viam prudentiae.

O Wisdom, coming forth from the mouth of the Most High,

reaching from one end to the other mightily,

and sweetly ordering all things:

Come and teach us the way of prudence.
