The King Shall Come

We hope all of our friends & fam have experienced a truly merry & abundantly joyful Christmas holy-day! We have had an unprecedented yet wonderful time with both sides of our families. Thank you for everyone's willingness to come up here this year and change things up a bit. It was an honor & a pleasure to host everyone, we are so deeply thankful for such incredible & loving families. So to end this blessed day, I wanted to share a new Christmas hymn I found this year as I was flipping thru my hymnal a few weeks back. I've never heard it played before, but the words are striking and simply sum it all up for me. I eagerly await His second coming...

The King shall come when morning dawns, and light triumphant breaks,
when beauty gilds the eastern hills, and life to joy awakes.

Not as of old a little child, to bear and fight and die,
But crowned with glory like the sun, that lights th
e morning sky.

O brighter than the rising morn, when he, victorious, rose,
And left the lonesome place of death, despite the rage of foes.

O brighter than that glorious morn, shall this fair morning be,
When Christ our King in beauty comes, and we his face shall see!

The King shall come when morning dawns, and light and beauty brings,
Hail, Christ the Lord! thy people pray, come quickly, King of Kings!
