O antiphon of the day: O Rex gentium (Dec 22)

Today's O antiphon:

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

O King of the nations, and their desire,
the cornerstone making both one:
Come and save the human race,
which you fashioned from clay.

Is this Marc-Antoine Charpentier again? (Whoever it is, gotta love that gonzo Gallicised pronunciation of Latin.)
