In preparation for our celebration of the birth of a Savior, here's one of the most ancient Advent carols, and one of my personal favorites. This particular version is modern, but the words date back to the 8th century.
If you'd like the words, you'll find them here. This version uses only three verses, 7, 5 and 2, in that order. Click here to play a more complete rendition of this hymn, in more traditional style.
There'll be more Christmas music tomorrow.
