Five Final Advent Hymns

In these final days of Advent, let us raise our voices in joyful expectation, for very soon, Maranatha (“the Lord is coming“).

A last listen to this old favourite, Veni, Veni, Emmanuel, (“O come, O Come, Emmanuel“):

 

An old 16th Century French hymn full of hopeful waiting, Venez Divin Messie (“O Come Divine Messiah”):

 

This lovely Advent hymn comes from Germany, Maris Dutch ein Dornwald ging, (“Mary Walks Amid the Thorn”):

 

This English-speaking Advent hymn, “Waiting in Silence”, comes with some magnificent scenes from Ontario, Canada:

 

We look towards the East from whence comes, “The Rising Son”:

 

And finally, after the five hymns, let us sing the glories of Our Lord with this beautiful ancient Gregorian chant, Rorate Caeli:
