348. Advent tells us Christ is near

Four 7's


Arr. from G. F. Handel, 1728

Katherine Hankey, 1888

Advent tells us Christ is near;

Christmas tells us Christ is here!

In Epiphany we trace

All the glory of his grace.

Those three Sundays before Lent

Will prepare us to repent,

That in Lent we may begin

Earnestly to mourn for sin.

Holy Week and Easter, then,

Tell who died and rose again:

O that happy Easter Day!

"Christ is risen indeed," we say.

Yes, and Christ ascended, too,

To prepare a place for you;

So we give him special praise,

After those great forty days.

Then, he sent the Holy Ghost,

On the day of Pentecost,

With us ever to abide:

Well may we keep Whitsuntide!

Last of all, we humbly sing

Glory to our God and King,

Glory to the One in Three,

On the Feast of Trinity.
