Advent - The Fourth Sunday

On the fourth Sunday in Advent, we light the Angel candle. It's a thrill to have all four candles lit. Our readings for the week are:

Sun. Is. 7:10-14
Mon. Luke 1:26-35
Tue. Is. 9:2-7
Wed. Mt. 1:18-25
Thu. Luke 2:1-20
Fri. Mt. 2:1-2
Sat. Luke 2:21-35

One of the boys' favorite hymns this season has been "Hark the Herald Angel's Sing!" C4 still doesn't quite know all the lyrics and tends to switch between "Hark!" and "Razom nas Bagato."

Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the new-born King;
Peace on earth and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled!"
Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With the angelic host proclaim.
"Christ is born in Bethlehem!"
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the new-born King!"

Christ, by highest heaven adored.
Christ, the everlasting Lord,
Late in time behold Him come,
Offspring of a virgin's womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see,
Hail the incarnate Deity!
Pleased as Man with man to dwell;
Jesus, our Immanuel!
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the new-born King!"

Hail, the heavenly Prince of Peace!
Hail, the Sun of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings,
Risen with healing in His wings.
Mild He leaves His throne on high,
Born that man no more may die;
Born to raise the sons of earth;
Born to give them second birth.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the new-born King!"

Come, Desire of nations, come,
Fix in us Thy humble home;
Oh, to all Thyself impart,
Formed in each believing heart!
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the new-born King;
Peace on earth and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled!"
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the new-born King!"

we lit the fourth candle last night and the girls were so excited!!!
We have been reading an advent book (one ch per day) called The Christmas Mystery which they are also loving. This is our first year doing advent and it has made such a difference.

Okay, As I was listening to "Razom..." I was trying to imagine the lyrics to "Hark..." :o) Hilarious!

Oh good - more advent resources! We did an advent wreath too and a Jesse tree. But I didn't grow up doing liturgical kinds of things and I'm always hunting down credible sources to use... Thanks!
