“Omnes de Saba venient” by Joseph Eybler

A commentary on this week’s music by Dr. James T. Gerber, Music Associate

Omnes de Saba venient,
aurum et thus deferentes
et laudem Domino annuntiantes.
Alleluja.
Surge et illuminare Jerusalem
quia gloria Domini super te orta est.
Alleluja.
Vidimus stellam ejus in Oriente.
Alleluja.
et venimus cum muneribus adorare
Dominum.
Alleluja.

English Translation:

They will all come from Saba;
they will bring gold and frankincense
and praise the Lord.
Hallelujah.
Rise and shine, Jerusalem, for the glory
of the Lord has risen above you.
Hallelujah.
We have seen his star in the East,
Hallelujah.
And we have come with presents to
worship the Lord.
Hallelujah.

Gradual for Epiphany;
Isaiah 60:6 and Matthew 2:2
