A Poor Brother's Hymnal
Saturday, October 06, 2007
  Come, and Christ the Lord be praising,
Come, and Christ the Lord be praising,
Heart and mind to Him be raising,
Celebrate His love amazing,
Worthy folk of Christendom.

Sin, death, hell may all be grieving,
Satan shame to feel him cleaving;
We, salvation free receiving,
Cast our every care away.

See what God for us provideth,
Life that in His Son abideth,
And our weary steps He guideth
From earth's woe to heavenly joy.

His soul deeply for us feeleth,
He His love to us revealeth,
He who in the heavens dwelleth
Came to save us from the foe.

Jacob's Star his advent maketh,
Sooths the longing heart that acheth,
And the serpent's head He breaketh,
Loathing all the powers of hell.
