Hymns of Advent-Preparing our Hearts

2
305

Tis the season to prepare our hearts for the advent of Christ. Many scholars believe that Christ was born in the summer month of July. So perhaps, at best, “Christmas in December” is just symbolic of our Lord’s birthday. But whatever the case may be, it’s genuinely remarkable to reflect on the birth of Jesus and celebrate His arrival on earth!

Make sure to read through this list and pick out a few hymns to enjoy listening to or sing with your family during this thought-provoking time of year. It is an audio/history source (meaning you can listen and sing along and learn the background of each hymn), so we have added the lyrics of a few hymns here for you to enjoy!

COME THOU LONG EXPECTED JESUS

IT CAME UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR

  1. It came upon the midnight clear,
    That glorious song of old,
    From angels bending near the earth,
    To touch their harps of gold;
    “Peace on the earth, good will to men,
    From Heav’n’s all-gracious King.”
    The world in solemn stillness lay,
    To hear the angels sing.
  2. Still through the cloven skies they come
    With peaceful wings unfurled,
    And still their heav’nly music floats
    O’er all the weary world;
    Above its sad and lowly plains,
    They bend on hov’ring wing,
    And ever o’er its Babel sounds
    The blessed angels sing.
  3. Yet with the woes of sin and strife
    The world has suffered long;
    Beneath the angel strain have rolled
    Two thousand years of wrong;
    And man, at war with man, hears not
    The love-song which they bring;
    Oh, hush the noise, ye men of strife
    And hear the angels sing.
  4. And ye, beneath life’s crushing load,
    Whose forms are bending low,
    Who toil along the climbing way
    With painful steps and slow,
    Look now! for glad and golden hours
    Come swiftly on the wing.
    Oh, rest beside the weary road,
    And hear the angels sing!
  5. For lo! the days are hast’ning on,
    By prophet seen of old,
    When with the ever-circling years
    Shall come the time foretold
    When Christ shall come and all shall own
    The Prince of Peace, their King,
    And saints shall meet Him in the air,
    And with the angels sing.

AWAKE MY SOUL, AWAKE MY TONGUE!

Awake, My Soul, Awake, My Tongue,
My Glory Wake And Sing,
And Celebrate The Holy Birth,
The Birth Of Israel’s King!

O Happy Night That Brought Forth Light,
Which Makes The Blind To See,
The Dayspring From On High Came Down
To Cheer And Visit Thee.

The Careful Shepherds With Their Flocks
Were Watching For The Morn,
But Better News From Heav’n Was Brought;
Your Saviour Now Is Born!

In Bethlehem The Infant Lies,
Within A Place Obscure,
Your Saviour’s Come, O Sing God’s Praise!
O Sing His Praise Forever.
