An Antiphon from Last Night

Please read my last post, “Sarum Again” for context.

“Adorna Thalamum”

Adorn thy bridal chamber, O Sion, and receive Christ the King:  embrace Mary, who is the gate of heaven, who herself truly brings the glorious King of new light.  She remains a virgin, though bearing in her hands a Son begotten before the daystar, whom Simeon, taking Him in his arms, proclaimed to be the Lord of life and death, and Saviour of the world.
