We begin the season of Advent on Sunday, the preparation for the coming of the Christ child at Christmas. Here’s an Advent hymn for you, sung to the tune Deep HarmonyWe wait in hope for hope to come: promised of old; the righteous one. Help us to watch, expect and pray and then to greet Messiah’s day.
We read the story of your plan: this world redeemed by heaven’s Son. Grace breaks upon the present time; mercy and hope through David’s line.
We hear the prophet’s voice ring clear: ‘changed hearts and lives are needed here’. So, when the Spirit fires your Church, make us a sign for all who search.
We go to share this great Good News: heirs of the promise – we will choose to live in hope that all may sing praises to Christ, the infant king.
