O Come O Come Emmanuel by Henry Sloane Coffin, Thomas Helmore, & John Mason Neale
O Little Town of Bethlehem by Phillips Brooks & Lewis Henry Redner
In the season of Advent, we wait for the arrival of Jesus, our Lord and our one true hope.
Isaiah 2 says: He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.
God of hope, we wait for you with open and eager hearts. Come, Lord Jesus.
