Theme: Advent

1.  Creator of the stars of night, 
    Your people's everlasting light, 
    O Christ, Redeemer of us all, 
    We pray You, hear us when we call.

2.  When this old world drew on toward night, 
    You came, but not in splendor bright,
    Not as a monarch, but the child 
    Of Mary, blameless mother mild.

3.  At Your great name, O Jesus, now 
    All knees must bend, all hearts must bow:
    All things on earth with one accord, 
    Like those in heaven, shall call You Lord.

4.  To God the Father, God the Son, 
    And God the Spirit, Three in One,
    Praise, honor, might, and glory be 
    From age to age eternally.  Amen.
