O Radix Jesse

O Root of Jesse, you stand for an ensign of the people; before you kings will shut their mouths and for you the Gentiles will seek: come and deliver us, and do not tarry. 

O Radix Jesse, qui stas in signum populorum, super quem continebunt reges os suum, quem Gentes deprecabuntur: veni ad liberandum nos, jam noli tardare. 

There is a flower sprung of a tree,
The root thereof is called Jesse,
A flower of price;
There is none such in paradise.
