First Sunday of Advent

Sermon by Rev. Matthew J. van Maastricht
Scripture Text: Jeremiah 29: 1, 4-14

Choir Anthem: "Come, Messiah"

 

O come, Divine Messiah, the world in silence waits the day
when hope shall sing its triumph, and sorrows flee away.

O come, Desire of nations, whom priest and prophet long foretold,
and break the chains that bind us, redeem Your long-lost fold.

Come, Messiah! Dispel our night with the dawn of grace.
Come, Messiah! We long to see Your face. Come, Messiah come!

O come, dear Child of promise, for lowly shall Your cradle be;
though clothed in human likeness, we shall the Godhead see!
