Advent, Week One

by | Dec 3, 2012 | News

Written by Alex Kneen  for week one of Advent At Exodus Church.


Since Adam fell the world has stumbled blind

With death’s dark shadow chasing at its heel

And desperate men grasp fleeting hopes to find

Such hopes, like dreams, are brutally unreal.


But darkness would not have the final say

For God, in wisdom deeper than our sin,

Has set his zealous love on full display

And sent a savior swaddled in our skin


Then unto us a child was born!  A son!

A brilliant flash of glory split the night!

His newborn cry, a herald of the dawn,

Has bid the sleeping world into the light.


So shake the fleeting hopes to which you cling

Awake O sleepers and behold your King!
