Advent 2023: December 15 - Hymn

Friday, December 15th: Hymn and Reflect

Hymns are a great way to pray.  Our hymn for today is #348 The King Shall Come When Morning Dawns.  Read these verses as a prayer:

The King shall come when morning dawns
and light triumphant breaks,
When beauty gilds the eastern hills
And life to joy awakes.

Not, as of old a little child,
to bear, and fight and die,
But crowned with glory like the sun
that lights the morning sky.

Oh, brighter than the rising morn
When Christ, victorious rose
And left the lonesome place of death,
despite the rage of foes.

Oh, brighter than that glorious morn
Shall dawn upon our race
the day when Christ in splendor comes
And we shall see His face.

The King shall come when morning dawns
and light and beauty brings.
Hail, Christ the Lord! Your People pray:
Come quickly, King of kings!

This week we read Daniel 3, Isaiah 7-9, Number 21, and Psalm 51.  How did these passages point us to and show us Jesus and his love for us?
