Christmas Day 2011 – Adeste Fideles

Leave a comment

Yea, Amen! let all adore Thee,
High on Thine eternal throne;
Saviour, take the power and glory,
Claim the kingdom for Thine own;
O come quickly!
Everlasting God, come down!

As a conclusion to this series of blogs, the final verse of Charles Wesley’s great advent hymn – Lo Lo! He comes with clouds descending – which tells of the coming of Jesus. The waiting is over.

2011 Christmas Tree at Southwark Cathedral

In the 18th century, John Francis Wade penned what is now a well known Christmas Hymn – Adete Fideles, otherwise know as O Come, all ye faithful, the final verse of which (should) only gets sung on Christmas Day.

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee,
Born this happy morning;
Jesu, to Thee be glory given;
Word of the Father,
Now in flesh appearing.
Venite, adoremus Dominum.

Have a joyous and peaceful Christmas.
