O Antiphon 12/22- O King of the Nations

O Rex Gentium (O King of the Nations) 
O King of the Nations and their desired One, the Cornerstone that makes both one; Come, and deliver humanity, whom You formed out of the dust of the earth.
 
O Rex Gentium, et desideratus earum, lapisque angularis, qui facis utraque unum: veni, et salva hominem, quem de limo formasti.
 
“For all the boots of the tramping warriors
   and all the garments rolled in blood
   shall be burned as fuel for the fire. 
He shall judge between the nations,
   and shall arbitrate for many peoples;
they shall beat their swords into ploughshares,
   and their spears into pruning-hooks;
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
   neither shall they learn war any more.”
 – Isaiah 9:5; 2:4
