Advent: November 2008 Archives

Behold, the great Prophet shall come; and He shall renew Jerusalem, alleluia.


A thrilling voice by rings

Rebuking guilt and darksome things:

Vain dreams of sins and visions fly;

Christ in His might shines forth on high.


St John the Baptist.jpgNow let each torpid soul arise

That sunk in guilt and wounded lies;

See, the new Star's refulgent ray

Shall chase disease and sin away.


The Lamb descends from heaven above

To pardon sin with freest love:

For such indulgent mercy shown

With tearful joy our thanks we own.


That when again He shines revealed

And trembling worlds to terror yield,

He give not sin its just reward

But in His love protect and guard.


To God the Father, God the Son,

And God the Spirit, Three in One,

Praise, honor, might and glory be

From age to age eternally. Amen.


V. The voice of one crying in the desert: make ready the way of the Lord.

R. Make straight His paths.


We beseech Thee, O Lord, show forth Thy power and come, that we may deserve to be rescued from the ever-threatening danger of our sins, and be saved by Thy deliverance.
