In O Sapientia (O wisdom), I am reminded of the spirit of the lord hovering over the primordial soup in Genesis; In O Adonai (O lord), we remember the Lord who revealed himself to Moses in the burning bush (I am who I am) and handed over the ten commandments.  Now we come to Jesse, the ancestor of David, and a reminder that God, the root of Jesse,  is king of kings.

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

In English:
O Root of Jesse, standing as a sign among the peoples; before you kings will shut their mouths, to you the nations will make their prayer: Come and deliver us, and delay no longer.

Here is one of the many videos on YouTube:
