Feather's Miscellany: Advent Hymn

John Waddington-Feather has written an Advent hymn filled with joy but which also brings a warning.

Be joyful in the Lord most high!
Sing forth in endless praise
you heavenly choirs, for Christ is nigh,
full loud your anthems raise!

He comes in majesty to judge
all nations living here,
each ruler, despot, meanest drudge,
all will his sentence hear.

He will to each their sentence read,
but, if repentant, he
forgives us all our sinful deeds
through bitter Calvary.

Christ’s sacrifice upon the Cross
has freed us from our sins;
no matter if they wax so gross,
we are forgiven in Him.

This Advent-tide let us rejoice,
he comes, he comes, our Lord!
Though born like us, let us give voice
and greet the Incarnate Word!
