Advent Hymn: O Come Divine Messiah

A wonderful Advent hymn.


O come, divine Messiah!
The world in silence waits the day
When hope shall sing its triumph,
And sadness flee away.

Sweet Saviour, haste;
Come, come to earth;
Dispel the night, and show thy face,
And bid us hail the dawn of grace.
O come, divine Messiah,
The world in silence waits the day
When hope shall sing its triumph,
And sadness flee away.

O thou, whom nations signed for,
Whom priests and prophets long foretold,
Wilt break the captive fetters,
Redeem the long lost fold.

Shalt come in peace and meekness,
And lowly will they cradle be;
All clothed in human weakness
Shall we thy God head see.
