Advent

May God bless you with His presence at your worship gatherings this morning!

Following in the time-honored tradition I began... ah... last Sunday, here are the words to one of the songs to be sung at Wall Highway this morning:


Come, Thou long expected Jesus
Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us,
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel’s Strength and Consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear Desire of every nation,
Joy of every longing heart.

Born Thy people to deliver,
Born a child and yet a King,
Born to reign in us forever,
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
By Thine own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all sufficient merit,
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.

by Charles Wesley (1745?), music by Rowland H. Pritchard (1830)
