Advent IV

Advent IV December 18, 2011

Why lies He in such mean estate

Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christian, fear; for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.
Nails, spear shall pierce him through,
The Cross be borne for me, for you;
Hail, hail the Word Made Flesh,
The babe, the son of Mary!(CC Licensed for reuse)
{Your hymnal might not have this different chorus. Mine doesn’t. Good thing Sufjan Stevens includes it on his Songs for Christmas.}
