about

The ancient story of Advent and the Incarnation are beautifully captured in this four-song set from Christ Church East Bay, reminding us that we are found in God's story as we remember His saving acts and anticipate His re-creation of all things.

Track Name: Kyrie 1
Lord, have mercy on us
Christ, have mercy on us
Fountain of life, Creator of all,
Lord, have mercy on us
Christ, have mercy on us

Lord, have mercy on us
Christ, have mercy on us
Thou Breath of life, in whom are all things,
Lord, have mercy on us
Christ, have mercy on us
Track Name: How Long, O Lord
How long, O Lord, will You be silent?
Lord, hear our cry; have mercy on us.

How long, O Lord? We wait in darkness.
Lord, hear our cry; speak comfort to us.

A voice calls out: "Prepare the way,
In desert lands, make straight a highway.

"Every valley shall be raised up,
Every mountain and hill made low,
Mountain and hill made low.
And the crooked shall be made straight,
And the rough places plain,
And the rough places plain."

How long, O Lord? We toil in sadness.
Our souls ache, Lord; send us Your presence.

How long, O Lord, until Your glory
Will be revealed and You have spoken?
Track Name: Light of Our Dwelling
Light of those whose dreary dwelling
Borders on the shades of death
Come and by Thy love's revealing
Dissipate the clouds beneath

The new heav'n and earth's Creator
In our deepest darkness rise
Scatt'ring all the night of nature
Pouring eyesight on our eyes

Still we wait for Thine appearing
Life and joy Thy beams impart
Chasing all our fears and cheering
Ev'ry poor benighted heart

Come and manifest the favor
God hath for our ransomed race
Come Thou universal Savior
Come and bring the gospel grace

By Thine all redeeming merit
Ev'ry burdened soul release
Ev'ry weary wand'ring spirit
Guide into Thy perfect peace

Light of those whose dreary dwelling
Borders on the shades of death
Come and by Thy love's revealing
Dissipate the clouds beneath
Track Name: Unto Us (Prince of Peace)
People that in darkness dwell,
Veiled in grief and sore oppressed,
Hearts forlorn and souls weighed down,
Bearing pain and sadness.

Now there shall be no more gloom
For those who were in distress.
See, our night is ending soon,
Light will shine in darkness.

For to us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given,
Bringing heaven's joy to earth;
Glory in the highest!

On those living in the land,
Burdened with a heavy load,
From deep darkness Light has dawned,
Shatt'ring ev'ry yoke.

For to us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given.
Emmanuel has come to earth;
Glory in the highest! Glory in the highest!

People that in darkness walk,
Bid your feeble striving cease.
Fear not, for our Light has dawned:
Jesus, Prince of Peace.
Jesus, Prince of Peace.
Jesus, Prince of Peace.
