Wishing You a Blessed Advent!

I hope to get the remainder of my birthday posts finished up over the next few weeks as well as this year's St. Nicholas ornament post.  Until then, however, I wanted to share a beautiful Advent hymn.

"O Come, Divine Messiah" stems from the old French Christmas hymn, "Venez divin Messie." It is a popular hymn generally sung in Traditional Catholic churches during  Advent.  You can listen to (most of) this beautiful Advent hymn here.



O Come, Divine Messiah

1. O come, Divine Messiah,
The world in silence waits the day
When hope shall sing its triumph,
And sadness flee away.

Refrain:
Dear Savior, haste! Come, come to earth.
Dispel the night and show Your face,
And bid us hail the dawn of grace.
O come, Divine Messiah,
The world in silence waits the day
When hope shall sing its triumph,
And sadness flee away.

2. O Christ, Whom nations sigh for,
Whom priest and prophet long foretold,
Come break the captive fetters,
Redeem the long-lost fold. [Refrain]

3. You come in peace and meekness,
And lowly will your cradle be;
All clothed in human weakness
Shall we Your Godhead see. [Refrain]

God bless!
