O Antiphons V, VI, VII

O Dayspring, Splendor of Light Everlasting, Son of Righteousness: Come and enlighten those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death.

O King of the Nations, the Ruler they long for, the Cornerstone uniting all people: Come and save humankind whom you formed out of clay.

O Emmanuel, our King and Lawgiver, the Desire of all nations, and their Savior: Come and save us, O Lord our God.

One more cool thing about these antiphons: moving from the last antiphon to the first, the first letter of each first word spells ERO CRAS (Emmanuel, Rex, Oriens, Clavis, Radix, Adonai, Sapientia), which means “I will come tomorrow” or “I will be [with you] tomorrow.” Indeed, come Lord Jesus.
