Greeting card for Christmas 2009 and New Year 2010

Taking the opportunity to thank all visitors and friends to my blogspot, for your continuing support and encouragement through the years. Your visits and kind comments are very much appreciated.

Here's sharing the lyrics of the following hymn which is popularly sung during the Season of Advent, in hopeful anticipation and preparedness for our Savior's coming :

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel!

(lyrics and music at Cyber Hymnal)
  1. 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
  2. O come, Thou dayspring, bright and cheer
    Our spirits by Thine advent here
    Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
    And death's dark shadows put to flight.
  3. O come, Thou Wisdom from on high,
    Who orders all things far and nigh
    To us the path of knowledge show
    And teach us in her ways to go.
  4. O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
    Thine own from Satan's tyranny
    From depths of hell Thy people save
    And give them victory over the grave.
  5. O come, Thou Key of David, come
    And open wide our heavenly home
    Make safe the way that leads on high
    And close the path to misery.
  6. O come, Desire of nations, bind
    In one the hearts of all mankind
    Bid Thou our sad divisions cease
    And be Thyself our King of Peace.
Sharing below two photos captured to keep record of changes in our home during the Christmas Season: our altar with the Christmas crib on the left and Christmas tree on the right, both of which are lighted up every night since the first day of Advent, November 29th.
