A Hymn for Advent

Gift of God, Sweet Mary’s Boy

 Jesus in the manger

 

 

 

Child of heaven, once foretold

By God’s prophets long ago.

Come into our hearts today;

Sit beside us while we pray.

Gift of God, Sweet Mary’s Boy,

You are peace, hope, love and joy!

*************

Old Isaiah heard your name,

Jeremiah, Micah too.

Malachi prepared the way;

Zephaniah told his day.

Gift from God, Sweet Mary’s Boy,

You are peace, hope, love and joy!

***************

Shepherd promised, Child of Light,

Come and shine our dark away,

We, like magi, seek your star,

Wand’ring sheep, we’ve gone too far.

Gift from God, Sweet Mary’s Boy,

You are peace, hope, love and joy!

*****************

Immanuel, full of grace,

Branch from Jesse, Mighty King,

Humble Servant, God’s own Son,

We worship You, O Holy One.

Gift of God, Sweet Mary’s Boy,

You are peace, hope, love and joy!
