Advent means coming toward. We are coming toward Christmas. We do this not merely by watching the days go by on a calendar, but by properly preparing ourselves. Many years ago, before the coming of Jesus, there were those who were saying “prepare the way of the Lord.”

Tune: Joy to the World

Joy to the world! The Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare him room,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven, and heaven and nature sing.
Joy to the world! The Savior reigns;
Let men their songs employ,
While fields and floods,
rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.
