Advent Day 7 - Prepare the Royal Highway

There I will cause a horn to sprout up for David; I have prepared a lamp for my anointed one.

Psalm 132:17

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 "Prepare the Royal Highway."

Prepare the royal highway;

the King of kings is near!

Let ev'ry hill and valley

a level road appear!

Then greet the King of glory,

foretold in sacred story:


Hosanna to the Lord,

for he fulfills God's word!

God's people, see him coming:

your own eternal king!

Palm branches strew before him!

Spread garments! Shout and sing!

God's promise will not fail you!

No more shall doubt assail you! Refrain

Then fling the gates wide open

to greet your promised king!

Your king, yet ev'ry nation

its tribute too may bring.

All lands will bow before him;

their voices join your singing: Refrain

His is no earthly kingdom;

it comes from heav'n above.

His rule is peace and freedom

and justice, truth, and love.

So let your praise be sounding

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