Third Sunday in Advent

(skip to 1:10)

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.

In sorrow that the ancient curse
Should doom to death a universe,
You came, O Savior, to set free
Your own in glorious liberty.

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

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.

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.
