Advent - December 7th

By David Long-Higgins - Tuesday December 7, 2021

Tuesday, December 7th

Today’s Advent Devotional is a musical meditation from the Rev. David Long-Higgins.  The video can be viewed by clicking HERE

The song is the carol “In the Bleak Midwinter” from the poem of the same name written by Christina Rossetti. The musical arrangement was written by Gustav Holst.

 

Please reflect on the words:

In the bleak mid-winter
Frosty wind made moan;
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak mid-winter
Long ago.

 

Our God, heaven cannot hold Him
Nor earth sustain,
Heaven and earth shall flee away
When He comes to reign:
In the bleak mid-winter
A stable-place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty,
Jesus Christ.

 

Enough for Him, whom cherubim
Worship night and day,
A breastful of milk
And a mangerful of hay;
Enough for Him, whom Angels
Fall down before,
The ox and ass and camel
Which adore.

 

Angels and Archangels
May have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim
Thronged the air;
But only His Mother
In her maiden bliss
Worshipped the Beloved
With a kiss.

 

What can I give Him,
Poor as I am? 
If I were a Shepherd
I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man
I would do my part, 
Yet what I can I give Him, 
Give my heart.
