Anthem text
Come, Jesus, come, Morning Star:
come with rays of joy and peace.
Word of hope, whom fears would bar,
from our darkness bring release.

Come, Jesus, come, Holy Child:
come enfleshed in humble birth.
Word of love, though scorned, reviled,
give our human life new worth.

Come, Jesus, come, living Lord:
come in prayer and sacraments.
Word of blessing still outpoured,
work in ways transcending sense.

Come, Jesus, come, King of kings:
come to rule on earth again.
Word for whom creation sings,
"O come, Prince of Peace, and reign."

--Carl P. Daw, Jr.

review copy

Carl Daw’s Advent/Christmas text celebrates the coming of the "Word for whom creation sings." Alfred Fedak’s setting is available for choir with keyboard and flute (or other C instrument), and also in the original scoring using string quartet instead of keyboard. The litany-like invocation that opens the text returns throughout, drawing the choir and congregation on a journey of anticipation.
