An Advent Carol
words and music by Walden

Awake, O soul, for Advent's come,
The Advent of your Lord!
The Prince of Peace is in the womb,
And man to God's restored.
Restored to hope, restored to grace,
Restored to run the race.
The Son of God in Mary's womb
Is rightfully adored.

Arise, O soul, and take the cross
And join the heav'nly cause.
The life of sin is not a loss
To give you need for pause.
No need to pause for earthly gains,
Nor pause for death's cold chains,
O bear the cross it is no loss,
To whom the Father draws.

O come with me to Bethlehem,
For He is David's Son,
The Shepherd true, the paschal Lamb,
Above Him there is none!
There's none so good, there's none so kind,
As He who heals the blind.
By faith we see our blessed Lamb,
Who's brighter than the sun.
