It’s the first week of Advent, and though by no means is this the definitive Advent Music mix, I hope you will enjoy it. We have a couple of versions of a timeless classic, Matthew Maher, an unknown group, an ensemble, Joan Osbourne, and Rare Earth, believe it or not.
To start it off, here’s a New Wave lamentation from Naked Eyes.
Promises, Promises, The world without a savior? These guys tells us how that is, which is why we have the Advent blues. The world, see, just can’t deliver that which we yearn for.
Which is why we sing…
O Come, O Come Emmanuel, Enya.
Veni veni Emmanuel, The L’Accorche-Choeur Ensemble.
God is With Us, Sojourn Music.
What if God Was One Of Us, Joan Osbourne. The miraculous thing is that God did become one of us, and still is one of us.
Lord, Come! And though I’ve never heard this described as an Advent hymn, it works from a certain perspective.
Get Ready, Rare Earth
He’s on his way.
