Description

SATB and Piano or Organ (Could easily be done SAB as well.) This is an easy and compelling setting of the famous plainsong melody. Perfect for any Advent service, especially if you have a small choir. This will work beautifully on piano as well as organ.

Savior of the nations, come;
Virgin’s Son, make Earth your home,
Marvel now, O heaven and earth,
That the Lord chose such a birth.

From the Godhead forth you came
And return unto the same,
Captive leading death and hell
High the song of triumph swell!

You, the chosen Holy One,
Have o'er death the victory won.
Boundless shall your kingdom be;
When shall we its glories see?

Brightly does your manger shine,
Glorious is its light divine.
Let not hate o’ercloud this light;
Ever be our faith so bright.
