Advent


A young girl and her betrothed
Chosen by God
In a strange city
Nowhere to rest

The time has come
The child is coming
Promised by the angel
The Son of the Most High

His advent is humble
Born in a stable
Only animals as witnesses
To the miracle

Jesus has come
To save us
From our sins
And iniquity
