Advent 2020 – Third Sunday of Advent

Advent is a time of waiting for the coming Messiah, who is Emmanuel, Jesus Christ the Lord.

God’s Promise of Peace

Angels from the Realms of Glory (1, 3-5)

Angels from the realms of glory,
wing your flight o’er all the earth;
ye who sang creation’s story,
now proclaim Messiah’s birth:

come and worship, come and worship,
worship Christ, the newborn King!

Sages, leave your contemplations,
brighter visions beam afar;
seek the great Desire of nations;
ye have seen his natal star: Refrain

Though an infant now we view him,
he will share his Father’s throne,
gather all the nations to him;
every knee shall then bow down: Refrain

Saints and angels join in praising
God, the Father, Spirit, Son,
evermore their voices raising
to the eternal Three in One: Refrain
