1 The advent of our God!
Behold, the Lord is near!
Greet His approach, ye saints, again,
With hymns of love and fear.

2 The everlasting Son
Scorns not the Virgin's womb:
That we from bondage may be freed
He bears a bondsman's doom.

3 Daughter of Sion, rise,
Behold thy lowly King!
And haste to meet Him, nor reject
The peace He deigns to bring.

4 As Judge He will return
On clouds with lightning riven,
And the One Body of His Saints
In triumph bear to Heaven.

5 Before that day appears,
Let sin's dark deeds be gone;
The old man all be put away,
The new man all put on.

6 Till He shall come again,
With all the Heavenly host,
Praise God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Holy Ghost. Amen.

--The Sarum Hymnal, 1869
