O Emmanuel

Last day of the "O" Antiphons -  is  "O Emmanuel"

Which for me becomes this:



O manual, laboring handbook,

gladden the work of our hands.

We wait for peace,

but terror comes instead.

What factory fashioned the

slashing shrapnel?



manual light, new elevation,

elicit handmade candles,

bread, bowls,



Carpenter, potter, baker,

emit manual glory.
