Second Sunday of Advent

Sermon by Rev. Matthew J. van Maastricht
Scripture Text: Ezekiel 37:1-14

Choir Anthem: "The Yearning"

 

There is a yearning in hearts weighed down by ancient grief and centuries of sorrow.
There is a yearning in hearts that in the darkness hide and in the shades of death abide, a yearning for tomorrow.
There is a yearning, a yearning for the promised One, the Firstborn of creation.
There is a yearning for the Lord who visited His own, and by His death for sin atoned, to bring to us salvation.

Emmanuel, Emmanuel, within our hearts, the yearning.
Emmanuel, Emmanuel, within our hearts, the yearning.

There is a yearning that fills the hearts of those who wait the day of His appearing.
There is a yearning when all our sorrows are erased, and we shall see the One who placed within our hearts the yearning.
