Advent 2012

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 20, 2012

 

             Advent is a time of watching and waiting.  As we journey to the time when Christ is revealed to us, we find it to be a time of discovery.  As for me, I found this beautiful French carol that has touched me deeply.  Let these words be our devotion.

 

He is born, the divine Christ child,
Play on the oboe and bagpipes merrily!
He is born, the divine Christ child,
Sing we all of the Savior mild.


Through long ages of the past,
Prophets have foretold his coming;
Through long ages of the past,
Now the time has come at last!

 

O how lovely, O how pure
Is this perfect Child of heaven;
O how lovely, O how pure
Gracious gift of God to man!

 

Jesus, Lord of all the world,
Coming as a child among us,
Jesus, Lord of all the world,
Grant to us thy heavenly peace.

- Doug Craig
