How can there be a Promise
Without True God, it to complete?
How can hope be fully sustained,
Faces cheered who once did weep?
Only because the God who said,
“My Word forever will stand,”
Before the foundation of earth was laid,
Spread out an Eternal plan.
So He cries on this eve of Advent,
“Lift up your voice with strength,”
The God ever faithful comes again,
Sing with JOY throughout Earth’s length!
