The Son of God is coming! He's going to be here soon

Representative Text

1. The Son of God is coming! He's going to be here soon,
just as the angel promised: born of a virgin's womb.
Clean house to show him honor. With water, soap, and broom,
scrub every nook and corner. Make ready every room.

2. The Son of God is coming, perhaps this very day!
Will our reception please him or turn him sad away?
With doors and hearts thrown open, let's greet our guest and say,
"Please make yourself at home here. We want you, Lord, to stay!"

3. The Son of God is coming! The kingdom's gracious heir
will dwell among his people in answer to their prayer.
Let those who have abundance be generous and share,
so each and every one may a joyful feast prepare.

4. The Son of God is coming! The skies reverberate
with angel choirs announcing the end of our long wait!
At last, he's on his way here! Come on! Don't hesitate!
Let's run and meet our Savior! It's time to celebrate!
