Singing a Song of Advent

Singing a song of Advent
of the coming of the king
born a humble child
of him we sing
Raised to lead and preach the word
to die upon the cross
Saving all of the world
at what a terrible cost
the mighty king, a humble lamb
our savior whipped and scorned
laid in a borrowed manger
and then a borrowed tomb
Rising on the third day
on Easter morn revealed
God had saved us from death
in his rising from the grave
By grace alone we are one
with our brother and our king
of him we sing

Singing the Song of Mary

Our mother, of our brother
our savior, the Christ
so we sing, joining her
singing the song of Mary
its melody alive
shining in the night
the darkness lit
by his bright star
Claiming our faith like Mary
a servant of God to be
walking humbly with our creator
welcoming our king

First Sunday of Advent
part of a series of sermons,
using the Advent Conspiracy
& poem from last year:

Joining Mary, her song
sung to God, for all generations -
blessings we share, each of us
with her, all creation, blessed by the creator
humble servants are we, walking with our brother
sharing this wondrous message, with her, the angels,
those who have gone before us

A choir, singing her song, our song
of praise, of grace, of God’s great works
rejoicing with our mother, our sister
at all the almighty has done for us,
for the people, the descendants of Abraham
by faith, by his love, all of us saved
Share the good news
