Welcome to everyone from near and far tuning in to listen this Sunday morning. We are glad you are here this fourth Sunday in advent.
Joy to the world, the Lord is come!Let earth receive its king;let ev’ry heart prepare him room,and heav’n and nature sing,and heav’n and nature sing,and heav’n, and heav’n and nature sing.Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns!Your sweetest songs employwhile fields and streams, and hills and plains,repeat the sounding joy,repeat the sounding joy,repeat, repeat the sounding joy.He rules the world with truth and grace,and makes the nations provethe glo-ries of his right-eous-ness,and wonders of his love,and wonders of his love,and wonders, wonders of his love.
Words: Isaac Watts (1674-1748)
Music: George Frederic Handel (1685-1759)
O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant!O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem!Come and behold him, born the King of angels;O come, let us adore him,O come, let us adore him,O come, let us adore him, Christ, the Lord!God of God, Light of Light,Lo! he abhors not the Virgin’s womb;Son of the Father, begotten, not created,Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation,Sing, all ye citizens of heav’n above:“Glory to God, glory in the highest!”Yea, Lord, we greet thee, born this happy morning;Jesus, to thee be glory giv’n;Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing;
