First Advent Sunday

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

piano cello performance of
The Piano Guys 

O come, O come, Emmanuel, And ransom captive Israel, That mourns in lonely exile here Until the Son of God appear. [Refrain] Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel. O come, Thou Wisdom from on high, Who orderest all things mightily; To us the path of knowledge show, And teach us in her ways to go. [Refrain] O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free Thine own from Satan's tyranny; From depths of hell Thy people save,
And give them victory over the grave. [Refrain] O come, Thou Day-spring, come and cheer Our spirits by Thine advent here; Disperse the gloomy clouds of night, And death's dark shadows put to flight. [Refrain] O come, Thou Key of David, come, And open wide our heavenly home; Make safe the way that leads on high, And close the path to misery. [Refrain] O come, O come, great Lord of might, Who to Thy tribes on Sinai's height In ancient times once gave the law In cloud and majesty and awe.


O come, Thou Root of Jesse's tree,

An ensign of Thy people be;

All peoples on Thy mercy call.

Before Thee rulers silent fall;
In one the hearts of all mankind;
O come, Desire of nations, bind
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease,
And be Thyself our King of Peace

We ADORE the Piano Guys!

We never did Advent when I was younger. I like the idea, though, for the 'real Christmas Season' (as opposed to the Christmas shopping season) to be more than just a couple of days at the end of the month. :)

Definitely agreed, LuAnn!Advent really does redirect thoughts when it's observed and pursued. I too find the entire celebration is extended and enlarged with a greater depth of meaning and inner reach... Much more satisfying than scrambling to get everything done for 1 big day ;)

And thanks for sharing your Piano Guys love! I'll think of you as I play their music ;)
