Advent Day 12 - O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

Our God comes and does not keep silence, before him is a devouring fire, and a mighty tempest all around him.

Psalm 50:3


Participate in the full devotional Prepare Ye!: Devotions for Advent, written by Reed Lessing. Copies of the book may be picked up in the BSLC Welcome Center.


Music suggestions to accompany today's devotion include "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel."















O come, O come, Emmanuel,

and ransom captive Israel,

that mourns in lonely exile here

until the Son of God appear.


Refrain

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

shall come to you, O Israel.


O come, O Wisdom from on high,

embracing all things far and nigh:

in strength and beauty come and stay;

teach us your will and guide our way. Refrain


O come, O come, O Lord of might,

as to your tribes on Sinai's height

in ancient times you gave the law

in cloud, and majesty, and awe. Refrain


O come, O Branch of Jesse, free

your own from Satan's tyranny;

from depths of hell your people save,

and give them vict'ry o'er the grave. Refrain


O come, O Key of David, come,

and open wide our heav'nly home;

make safe the way that leads on high,

and close the path to misery. Refrain


O come, O Dayspring, come and cheer;

O Sun of justice, now draw near.

Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,

and death's dark shadow put to flight. Refrain


O come, O King of nations, come,

O Cornerstone that binds in one:

refresh the hearts that long for you;

restore the broken, make us new. Refrain


O come, O come, Emmanuel,

and ransom captive Israel,

that mourns in lonely exile here

until the Son of God appear. Refrain


We will also be hosting weekly worship services and meals during the season of Advent. Join us on Wednesday nights for worship and fellowship.
