Advent Is Here

Tomorrow is the first Sunday in Advent. So, it's time for Advent purple here on the blog. Looks pretty good, I think.

Waiting for Christmas is the job of Advent...

Come, Thou long expected Jesus
Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us,
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel's Strength and Consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear Desire of every nation,
Joy of every longing heart.

Born Thy people to deliver,
Born a Child and yet a King,
Born to reign in us forever,
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
By Thine eternal Spirit
Rule in our hearts alone;
By Thine all sufficient merit,
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.

--Charles Wesley
