Description

SATB Choir and Cantor. The traditional Matin Responsory for Advent. Written especially for the service Darkness to Light, A Liturgy of Advent Lessons and Carols.

I look from afar:
And lo, I see the pow'r of God coming,
and a cloud cov'ring the whole earth.
Go ye out to meet him and say:
Tell us, art thou he that should come to reign over thy people Israel?
High and low, rich and poor, one with another.
Go ye out to meet him and say:
Hear, O thou shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a sheep:
Tell us, art thou he that should come?
Stir up thy strength, O Lord, and come:
To reign over thy people Israel.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost.
I look from afar: And lo, I see the pow'r of God coming,
and a cloud cov'ring the whole earth.
Go ye out to meet him and say:
Tell us, art thou he that should come to reign over thy people Israel?
