Domine, praestolamur adventum tuum, ut cito venias, et dissolvas jugum captivitatem nostrae.
Veni, Domine, noli tardare, relaxa facinora plebi tuae, et libera populum tuum.
(part 2 based on a Respond for 4th Friday in Advent, Sarum Rite)

O Lord, we await thy coming, that thou comest quickly and dissolvest the bonds of our captivity.
Come, O Lord, and tarry not: forgive the misdeeds of thy servants, and deliver thy people.
