Waiting for His Coming... Advent Week 4


JOY---Christ is born anew in my heart

Emmanuel... HOPE of all people, I give thanks.

LOVE-- the greatest gift I can give You...


O Clavis David--O Key of David (Is. 9:6, 22:22): "O key of David and scepter of Israel, what you open no one else can close again; what you close no one can open. O come to lead the captive from prison; free those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death." 

--from The Great "O" Antiphons of Advent 

O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel!


--famed song is from a 12th century Latin text, translated into English by John Mason Neale in the mid-1800's. 

Waiting for His coming...His peace... 

LOVE  & PEACE to you all!!
