The nights are fair drawing in—
as shadows lengthen, the light of Advent shines.
We are counting down the days,
looking forward in anticipation.
The clock is ticking, and we want to be ready.
What are we waiting for?
God in the flesh is coming among us.
The time is surely coming,
1. when we will see God’s promise, true and unbreakable.
2. and we will prepare the way, for Christ draws near.
3. when all the earth will sing God’s praise.
4. when, at last, we will walk in the way of peace.
