O HEAVENS, SEND YOUR RAIN

ADVENT



Latin: ROTATE CÆLI DESUPER

O HEAVENS, SEND YOUR RAIN


O heavens, send your rain upon us,
send down the Just One to Israel.

Do not be angry with us, Lord,
remember no longer all our past transgressions:
See, your city of Holies now has been deserted:
Sion has been abandoned:
Jerusalem has been made desolate:
The house of Your kind and merciful blessing
and of Your glory,
the place where abundant praise
rose from our fathers.

O heavens, send your rain upon us,
send down the Just One to Israel.
