Hymn for Advent

[Tune: St Olave, 66 66 66. AHB 154; or Laudes Domini 666D AHB 151 TIS 227]

The Lord's Messiah comes;
God's kingdom to announce.
He calls us to repent,
and all our sins renounce.
His conquest over sin
now gives us peace within.

He breaks into our world,
the light of God to show,
all darkness to dispel,
all evil overthrow.
Let justice now be done,
new life on earth begun.

Lord of the end to come,
your praise we will repeat,
the world you came to save,
you will perfect, complete.
There is no need to fear:
Rejoice, the Lord is near.
