Advent 2

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

O come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer,
Our spirits by thine advent here;
And drive away the shades of night,
And pierce the clouds and bring us light!

Rejoice! rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee,
O Israel!

Latin hymn c. 13th century

  1. "And pierce the clouds and bring us light!" YES! I don't think I've heard that song this Christmas at all. Great reminder,
