Let everything that breathes praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
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 "Come, Your Hearts and Voices Raising."
Come, your hearts and voices raising,
Christ the Lord with gladness praising;
Loudly sing His love amazing,
Worthy folk of Christendom.
Sin and death may well be groaning,
Satan now may well be moaning;
We, our full salvation owning,
Cast our every care away.
See how God, for us providing,
Gave His Son and life abiding;
He our weary steps is guiding
From earth's woes to heav'nly joy.
Christ, from Heaven to us descending
And in love our race befriending,
In our need His help extending,
Saved us from the wily foe.
Jacob's Star in all it's splendor
Beams with comfort sweet and tender,
Forcing Satan to surrender,
Breaking all the powers of hell.
From the bondage that oppressed us,
From sin's fetters that possessed us,
From the grief that sore distressed us,
We, the captives, now are free.
Oh, the joy beyond expressing
When by faith we grasp this blessing
And to Thee we come confessing
That our freedom Thou hast wrought!
Gracious Child, we pray Thee, hear us,
From Thy lowly manger cheer us,
Gently lead us and be near us
Till we join th'angelic choir.
We will also be hosting weekly worship services and meals during the season of Advent. Join us on Wednesday nights for worship and fellowship.
