Let the Clouds Rain the Just!

RORATE cœli, désuper, et nubes pluant justum: aperiátur terra, et gérminet Salvatórem. Cœli enárrant glóriam Dei: et opera mánuum ejus annúntiat firmamentum.

Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the Just: let the earth be opened and bud forth a Savior. The heavens show forth the glory of God: and the firmament declares the work of His hands.


Isaias 45:8; Psalm 18:2

Music by Josef Antonín Sehling.

From the album Christmas in Prague Cathedral, by Collegium Marianum (available in CD and digital format).

As Advent draws close to Christmas, we are reminded that “the desired of all nations shall come: and the house of the Lord shall be filled with glory” (Aggeus 2:8).
