Copied from a FR post a couple of years ago:

The following great Antiphons are said entire before and after the Magnificat, from the 17th to the 23rd of December, inclusive:

Antiphon for the 17th of December
O SAPIENTIA, quae ex ore Altissimi prodiisti, attigens a fine usque ad finem, fortiter suaviterque disponens omnia: veni ad docendum nos viam prudentiae.

O WISDOM that comest out of the mouth of the Most High, that reachest from one end to another, and dost mightily and sweetly order all things: come to teach us
the way of prudence!

Antiphon for the 18th of December

O ADONAI, et dux domus Israel, qui Moysi in igne flammae rubi apparuisti, et ei in Sina legem dedisti: veni ad redimendum nos in brachio extento.

O ADONAI, and Ruler of the house of Israel, who didst appear unto Moses in the burning bush, and gavest him the law in Sinai: come to redeem us with an
outstretched arm!

Antiphon for the 19th of December

O RADIX Jesse, qui stas in signum populorum, super quem continebunt reges os suum, quem Gentes deprecabuntur: veni ad liberandum nos, iam noli tardere.

O ROOT of Jesse, which standest for an ensign of the people, at whom the kings shall shut their mouths, whom the Gentiles shall seek: come to deliver us, make
no tarrying.

Antiphon for the 20th of December

O CLAVIS David, et sceptrum domus Israel: qui aperis, et nemo claudit; claudis, et nemo aperit: veni et educ vinctum de domo carceris, sedentem in tenebris, et
umbra mortis.

O KEY of David, and Sceptre of the house of Israel that openest and no man shutteth; and shuttest and no man openeth: come to bring out the prisoner from the
prison, and them that sit in darkness, and in the shadow of death.

Antiphon for the 21st of December

O ORIENS, splendor lucis aeternae, et sol justitiae: veni, et illumina sedentis in tenebris, et umbra mortis.

O DAYSPRING, Brightness of the everlasting light, Sun of Justice: come to give light to them that sit in darkness and the shadow of death!

Antiphon for the 22nd of December

O REX Gentium, et desideratus earum, lapisque angularis, qui facis utraque unem: veni, et salva hominem, quem de limo formasti.

O KING of the Gentiles, yea, and desire thereof; O Cornerstone, that makest of two one: come to save man, whom Thou has made of the dust of the earth! (O
KING of the Gentiles and their desired One, the Cornerstone that makes both one: Come, and deliver man, whom You formed out of the dust of the earth!)

Antiphon for the 23rd of December

O EMMANUEL, Rex et legifer noster, expectatio Gentium, et Salvator erum: veni ad salvandum nos, Domine Deus noster.

O EMMANUEL, our King and our Lawgiver, Longing of the Gentiles; yea, and salvation thereof: comes to save us, O Lord our God! (O EMMANUEL, God with us,
our King and Lawgiver, the expected of the nations and their Savior: Come to save us, O Lord our God.)

If one notices the text (if they know Latin) or the translation, it is pretty obvious that this is the source of the Advent hymn Veni, Veni Emmanuel. Also, if one takes
the first letter of each title in the antiphons in reverse order:

Rex Gentium

the Latin sentence Ero cras ("I will be with you tomorrow") is spelled.
