Track Name: Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus (Piano Accompaniment)
Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus lyrics:

Come, Thou long expected Jesus Born to set Thy people free; From our fears and sins release us, Let us find our rest in Thee. Israel's Strength and Consolation, Hope of all the earth Thou art; Dear Desire of every nation, Joy of every longing heart.

Born Thy people to deliver, Born a child and yet a King, Born to reign in us forever, Now Thy gracious kingdom bring. By Thine own eternal Spirit Rule in all our hearts alone; By Thine all sufficient merit, Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
Track Name: Comfort, Comfort Ye My People (Piano Accompaniment)
Comfort, Comfort Ye My People lyrics:

Comfort, comfort ye My people, Speak ye peace, thus saith our God; Comfort those who sit in darkness, Mourning 'neath their sorrow's load; Speak ye to Jerusalem Of the peace that waits for them; Tell her that her sins I cover, And her warfare now is over.

For the herald's voice is crying In the desert far and near, Bidding all men to repentance, Since the kingdom now is here. O that warning cry obey! Now prepare for God a way! Let the valleys rise to meet Him, And the hills bow down to greet Him.

Yea, her sins our God will pardon, Blotting out each dark misdeed; All that well deserved His anger He will no more see nor heed. She has suffered many a day, Now her griefs have passed away, God will change her pining sadness Into ever springing gladness.

Make ye straight what long was crooked, Make the rougher places plain: Let your hearts be true and humble, As befits His holy reign, For the glory of the Lord O'er the earth is shed abroad, And all flesh shall see the token That His Word is never broken.
Track Name: Gabriel's Message (Piano Accompaniment)
Gabriel's Message lyrics:

The angel Gabriel from heaven came, his wings as drifted snow, his eyes as flame; "All hail," said he, "thou lowly maiden, Mary, most highly favored lady," Gloria!

"For know a blessed Mother thou shalt be, all generations laud and ho nor thee, thy Son shall be Emmanuel, by seers foretold, most highly favored lady," Gloria!

Then gentle Mary meekly bowed her head, "To me be as it pleaseth God," she said, "my soul shall laud and magnify His holy Name." most highly favored lady," Gloria!

Of her, Emmanuel, the Christ was born in Bethlehem, all on a Christ mas morn, and Christian folk throughout the world will ever say most highly favored lady," Gloria!
Track Name: Hark the Glad Sound (Piano Accompaniment)
Hark the Glad Sound lyrics:

Hark, the glad sound! the Savior comes! The Savior promised long; Let every heart prepare a throne, And every voice a song.

On Him the Spirit, largely poured, Exerts its sacred Fire; Wisdom and might, and zeal and love, His holy Breast inspire.

He comes the pris'ners to release, In Satan's bondage held; The gates of brass before Him burst, The iron fetters yield.

He comes from thickest films of vice To clear the mental ray, And on the eyeballs of the blind To pour celestial day.

He comes the broken heart to bind, The bleeding soul to cure; And with the treasures of His grace T'enrich the humble poor.

His silver trumpets publish loud The jub'lee of the Lord Our debts are all remitted now Our heritage restored.

Our glad hosannas, Prince of Peace, Thy welcome shall proclaim; And Heav'n's eternal arches ring With Thy belovèd name.
Track Name: Jesus Came, The Heavens Adoring (Piano Accompaniment)
Jesus Came, The Heavens Adoring lyrics:

Jesus came, the heav'ns adoring, Came with peace from realms on high; Jesus came for man's redemption, Lowly came on earth to die. Alleluia! Alleluia! Came in deep humility.

Jesus comes again in mercy, When our hearts are bowed with care; Jesus comes again in answer To an earnest, heartfelt prayer; Alleluia! Alleluia! Comes to save us from despair.

Jesus comes to hearts rejoicing, Bringing news of sins forgiv'n; Jesus comes in sounds of gladness, Leading souls redeemed to Heav'n; Alleluia! Alleluia! Now the gate of death is riv'n.

Jesus comes in joy and sorrow, Shares alike our hopes and fears; Jesus comes, whate'er befalls us, Glads our hearts, and dries our tears; Alleluia! Alleluia! Cheering e'en our failing years.

Jesus comes on clouds triumphant, When the heav'ns shall pass away; Jesus comes again in glory; Let us then our homage pay, Alleluia! Alleluia! Till the dawn of endless day.
Track Name: Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Mighty Gates (Piano Accompaniment)
Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Mighty Gates lyrics:

Lift up your heads, ye mighty gates! Behold, the King of glory waits; The King of kings is drawing near, The Savior of the world is here; Life and salvation doth He bring, Wherefore rejoice and gladly sing: We praise Thee, Father, now! Creator, wise art Thou!

The Lord is just, a Helper tried, Mercy is ever at His side, His kingly crown is holiness, His scepter, pity in distress, The end of all our woe He brings; Wherefore the earth is glad and sings: We praise Thee, Savior, now! Mighty in deed art Thou!

O blest the land, the city blest, Where Christ the Ruler is confessed! O happy hearts and happy homes To whom this King in triumph comes! The cloudless Sun of joy He is, Who bringeth pure delight and bliss. O Comforter divine, What boundless grace is Thine!

Fling wide the portals of your heart; Make it a temple, set apart From earthly use for heav'ns employ, Adorned with prayer and love and joy; So shall your Sovereign enter in, and new and nobler life begin; To Thee, O God, be praise, For Word, and deed, and grace!

Redeemer, come! I open wide My heart to Thee; here, Lord, abide! Let me Thy inner presence feel, Thy grace and love in me reveal. Thy Holy Spirit guide us on, Until our glorious goal be won! Eternal praise and fame We offer to Thy Name.
Track Name: Lo He Comes With Clouds Descending (Piano Accompaniment)
Lo He Comes With Clouds Descending lyrics:

Lo! He comes with clouds descending, Once for ev'ry sinner slain; Thousand thousand saints attending, Swell the triumph of His train: Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! God appears on earth to reign.

Ev'ry eye shall now behold Him Robed in dreadful majesty; Those who set at naught and sold Him, Pierced and nailed Him to the tree, Deeply wailing, deeply wailing, deeply wailing, Shall the true Messiah see.

Ev'ry island, sea, and mountain, Heav'n and earth, shall flee away; All who hate Him must, confounded, Hear the trump proclaim the day: Come to judgment! Come to judgment! Come to judgment! Come to judgment! Come away!

Now redemption, long expected, See in solemn pomp appear; All His saints, by man rejected, Now shall meet Him in the air: Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! See the day of God appear!

Answer Thine own bride and Spirit, Hasten, Lord, the gen'ral doom! The new Heav'n and earth inherit, Take Thy pining exiles home: All creation, all creation, all creation, Travails! groans! and bids Thee come!

The dear tokens of His passion Still His dazzling body bears; Cause of endless exultation To His ransomed worshipers; With what rapture, with what rapture, with what rapture Gaze we on those glorious scars!

Yea, Amen! let all adore Thee, High on Thine eternal throne; Savior, take the power and glory, Claim the kingdom for Thine own; O come quickly! O come quickly! O come quickly! Everlasting God, come down!
Track Name: Magnificat - Mary's Song (Piano Accompaniment)
Magnificat - Mary's Song lyrics:

My soul shall magnify the Lord, And with my spirit I rejoice; My Savior has regard for me, He hears His lowly servant's voice.

Behold, I am forever blessed, For God has done great things for me; His mercy rests on those who fear, Who honor His Name most holy.

The Lord has shown His mighty arm, Those proud in heart He shall put down; The haughty from their thrones removed, The lowly have God's blessing found.

The hungry with good things are filled, They see God's kindness ev'ry day; But on the rich no blessing rests, With empty hands they're sent away.

The Lord helps His beloved ones, In mercy He His cov'nant keeps; Just as He promised long ago, to Abraham, and to his Seed.
Track Name: O come, O come, Emmanuel (Piano Accompaniment)
O come, O come, Emmanuel lyrics:

O come, O come, Emmanuel, And ransom captive Israel, That mourns in lonely exile here Until the Son of God appear. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Wisdom from on high, Who orderest all things mightily; To us the path of knowledge show, And teach us in her ways to go. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free Thine own from Satan's tyranny; From depths of hell Thy people save, And give them vict'ry ov'r the grave. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer Our spirits by Thine advent here; Disperse the gloomy clouds of night, And death's dark shadows put to flight. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Key of David, come, And open wide our heav'nly home; Make safe the way that leads on high, And close the path to misery. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.
Track Name: Oh Lord How Shall I Meet Thee (Piano Accompaniment)
Oh Lord How Shall I Meet Thee lyrics:

O Lord, how shall I meet Thee, How welcome Thee aright? All nations long to see Thee, My Hope, my heart's Delight! O kindle, Lord, most holy, Thy lamp within my breast, To do in spirit lowly All that may please Thee best.

Thy Zion palms is strewing, And branches fresh and fair; My heart, its pow'rs renewing, An anthem shall prepare. My soul puts off her sadness Thy glories to proclaim; With all her strength and gladness She fain would serve Thy Name.

What hast Thou left ungranted To give me glad relief? When soul and body panted In utmost depth of grief, In deepest degradation, Devoid of joy and peace, Then, Thou, my soul's Salvation, Didst come to bring release.

I lay in fetters groaning, Thou com'st to set me free; I stood, my shame bemoaning, Thou com'st to honor me. A glory Thou dost give me, A treasure safe on high, That will not fail nor leave me As earthly riches fly.

Love caused Thine incarnation Love brought Thee down to me; Thy thirst for my salvation Procured my liberty. O love beyond all telling, That led Thee to embrace, In love all love excelling, Our lost and fallen race!

Rejoice, then, ye sad-hearted, Who sit in deepest gloom, Who mourn o'er joys departed, And tremble at your doom: Despair not, He is near you, Yea, standing at the door; He brings His pity near you, And bids you weep no more.

No care nor effort either Is needed day or night, How ye may draw Him hither In your own strength and might. He comes, He comes with gladness, Moved by His love alone, To calm your fear and sadness, To Him they well are known.

Sin's debt, that fearful burden, Let not your souls distress; Your guilt the Lord will pardon and cover with His grace. He comes, He comes procuring The peace of sin forgiv'n, To all God's sons securing Their part and lot in heav'n.

Why should the wicked move you? Heed not their craft and spite! Your Savior who doth love you, Will scatter all their might. He comes, a King most glorious, and all His earthly foes In vain His course victorious Endeavor to oppose.

He comes to judge the nations, A terror to His foes, A light of consolations And blessed hope to those Who love the Lord's appearing. O glorious Sun, now come, Send forth Thy beams so cheering, And guide is safely home!
Track Name: On Jordans Banks the Baptist's Cry (Piano Accompaniment)
On Jordans Banks the Baptist's Cry lyrics:

On Jordan's bank the Baptist's cry Announces that the Lord is nigh; Come, then, and hearken, for he brings Glad tidings from the King of kings!

Then cleansed be every breast from sin; Make straight the way for God within; Prepare we in our hearts a home, Where such a mighty Guest may come.

For Thou art our Salvation, Lord, Our Refuge, and our great Reward. Without Thy grace our souls must fade And wither like a flow'r decayed.

Stretch forth Thine hand, to heal our sore, And make us rise and fall no more; Once more upon Thy people shine, And fill the world with love divine.

To Him Who left the throne of Heav'n To save mankind, all praise be giv'n; Like praise be to the Father done, And Holy Spirit, Three in One.
Track Name: Savior Of The Nations, Come (Piano Accompaniment)
Savior Of The Nations, Come lyrics:

Savior of the nations, come; Virgin's Son, here make Thy home! Marvel now, O heav'n and earth, That the Lord chose such a birth.

Not by human flesh and blood; By the Spirit of our God Was the Word of God made flesh, Woman's offspring, pure and fresh.

Wondrous birth! O wondrous Child Of the virgin undefiled! Though by all the world disowned, Still to be in heaven enthroned.

From the Father forth He came And returneth to the same, Captive leading death and hell High the song of triumph swell!

Thou, the Father's only Son, Hast o'er sin the vict'ry won. Boundless shall Thy kingdom be; When shall we its glories see?

Brightly doth Thy manger shine, Glorious is its light divine. Let not sin o'ercloud this light; Ever be our faith thus bright.

Praise to God the Father sing, Praise to God the Son, our King, Praise to God the Spirit be Ever and eternally.
Track Name: The Advent Of Our God (Piano Accompaniment)
The Advent Of Our God lyrics:

The advent of our God Shall be our theme for prayer Come, let us meet him on the road And place for Him prepare.

The everlasting Son Incarnate stoops to be, Himself the servant's form puts on To set His people free.

Come, Zion's daughter, rise To meet your lowly King, Nor let your faithless heart despise The peace He comes to bring.

As judge, on clouds of light, He soon will come again And all His scattered saints unite With Him on high to reign.

Before the dawning day Let sin be put to flight; No longer let the law hold sway, But walk in freedom's light.

All glory to the Son Who comes to set us free, With Father, Spirit, ever One, Through all eternity.
Track Name: The King Shall Come When Morning Dawns (Piano Accompaniment)
The King Shall Come When Morning Dawns lyrics:

The King shall come when morning dawns, And light triumphant breaks; When beauty gilds the eastern hills, And life to joy awakes.

Not as of old a little child To bear, and fight, and die, But crowned with glory like the sun That lights the morning sky.

O brighter than the rising morn When He, victorious, rose, And left the lonesome place of death, Despite the rage of foes.

O brighter than that glorious morn Shall this fair morning be, When Christ, our King, in beauty comes, And we His face shall see.

The King shall come when morning dawns, And earth's dark night is past; O haste the rising of that morn, The day that aye shall last.

And let the endless bliss begin, By weary saints foretold, When right shall triumph over wrong, And truth shall be extolled.

The King shall come when morning dawns, And light and beauty brings: Hail, Christ the Lord! Thy people pray, Come quickly, King of kings.
