For The Lord's Day: The Fourth Sunday of Advent

Angels, from the realms of glory,
Wing your flight o'er all the earth;
Ye who sang creation's story,
Now proclaim Messiah's birth;
Come and worship, come and worship,
Worship Christ, the newborn King.
-- James Montgomery

AdventWe use the Advent Wreath as a reminder of the promise of the one who said “I am the Light of the world,” and whose return we anticipate. Today’s candle is the Angels’ candle. “Suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God…” Luke 2:13. Today, as all four candles blaze, we remember the light of heaven’s glory and the celestial choir God sent to herald the birth of His Son, “…glory to the newborn King!”
