The O Antiphons: O Clavis David

O Clavis David, et sceptrum domus Israel; qui aperis, et nemo claudit; claudis, et nemo aperit: veni, et educ vinctum de domo carceris, sedentem in tenebris, et umbra mortis.

 O Key of David,

and Sceptre of the house of Israel,

who opens and no one shuts,

who shuts, and no one opens,

come and free from prison

we who sit in darkness

and the shadow of death.
