Advent daybook, 15: the lame shall leap

My Advent daybook for these 24 days of waiting. Join me, won't you?


Arc II 
Erica Grimm



Isaiah 35:1-6: The Ransomed Shall Return 

pause in silence 

Psalm 130: My Soul Waits for the Lord


pray the hymn 

Come, Thou long expected Jesus, 

Born to set Thy people free.

From our fears and sins release us. 

Let us find our rest in Thee. 

Israel's Strength and Consolation, 

Hope of all the earth Thou art. 

Dear Desire of every nation, 

Joy of every longing heart. 

Come, Thou mighty, humble Savior, 

God incarnate as a child 

Laying aside divine behavior 

Frailness taking, meek and mild 

Here we wait in expectation 

Now from heaven to earth descend 

From Thy sweet celestial station 

Come to be our loving friend. 

Born Thy people to deliver 

Born a child and yet a King. 

Born to reign in us forever 

Now Thy gracious kingdom bring 

By Thine own eternal Spirit 

Rule in all our hearts alone 

By Thine all sufficient merit 

Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
