Advent 2020 – Christmas Eve


Advent 2020 – Christmas Eve

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

Trust and Joy

O Come, O Come, Immanuel (1, 4, 6)

O come, O come, Immanuel,
and ransom captive Israel
that mourns in lonely exile here
until the Son of God appear.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Immanuel
shall come to you, O Israel.

O come, O Branch of Jesse’s stem,
unto your own and rescue them!
From depths of hell your people save,
and give them victory o’er the grave. Refrain

O come, O Bright and Morning Star,
and bring us comfort from afar!
Dispel the shadows of the night
and turn our darkness into light. Refrain

O Come, O Come, Immanuel (1, 4, 6)
