Hymns and Songs for Advent

Ancient & Modern – Hymns and Songs for Refreshing Worship
(Many of these are in Sing Praise)

Bless the Lord, the God of Israel
Come now, O Prince of Peace
Come, light of the world
Earth was waiting, spent and restless
For Mary, Mother of our Lord
Longing for light (Christ, be our light!)
My soul rejoices in God, my Saviour
People, look East
Soon and very soon
The people that in darkness sat
Word of justice, alleluia

Hymns of Glory, Songs of Praise

Christmas is coming
Come now, O Prince of peace
Comfort, comfort now my people
Heaven shall not wait
Lift up your heads, eternal gates
Make way, make way, for Christ the King
No wind at the window
People, look East
Sound the trumpet, the Lord is near
When out of poverty is born


Christmas is coming
Come to set us free
Comfort, comfort now my people
For Mary, mother of the Lord
He will come
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord
My soul proclaims you, mighty God
My soul rejoices
Now bless the God of Israel
When the angel came to Mary
Word of justice, alleluia 

Songs from Taizé

In the Lord
Wait for the Lord
