Advent Day 3 - Once He Came in Blessing

May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace!

Psalm 29:11

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 "Once He Came in Blessing."

Once he came in blessing,

all our ills redressing;

came in likeness lowly,

Son of God most holy;

bore the cross to save us;

hope and freedom gave us.

Still he comes within us;

still his voice would win us

from the sins that hurt us;

would to truth convert us

from our foolish error

ere he comes in terror.

Thus, if you have known him,

not ashamed to own him,

nor have spurned him coldly,

but will trust him boldly,

he will then receive you,

heal you, and forgive you.

Those who then are loyal

find a welcome royal.

Come, then, O Lord Jesus,

from our sins release us;

let us here confess you,

till in heav’n we bless you.

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