Veni, Veni, Emmanuel

Edward Riojas (Illustrator)

Learn the original Latin text of this Advent hymn, traditionally sung the week before Christmas. Each stanza highlights an Old Testament name for the coming Messiah, answering their prayers—and ours—with Emmanuel: God with us.

Vibrant illustrations will help readers appreciate the many prophecies fulfilled by Christ, even as they await His return. Written completely in Latin, special content includes Gregorian chant notation and a spread dedicated to the Antiphonæ Majores upon which the hymn is based.
