Advent Antiphon

Representative Text

1 As he comes, the Virgin's Son,
as he comes, the Faithful One,
ev'ry valley shall be filled,
ev'ry mountain and hill brought low
and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.

2 As he comes, Emmanuel,
as he comes, Good News to tell,
ev'ry valley shall be filled,
ev'ry mountain and hill brought low
and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.

3 As he comes, from Jesse's tree,
as he comes, to set us free,
ev'ry valley shall be filled,
ev'ry mountain and hill brought low
and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.

4 As he comes, the Lord of might,
as he comes, in darkness: light,
ev'ry valley shall be filled,
ev'ry mountain and hill brought low
and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
