Ascertaining Advent

Tune: Bristol

('Hark, the glad sound, the Saviour comes')

Matthew 24 v.27-31


For as lightning flashes from east

And shines e'en to the west

So shall coming of Jesus be

The Son of man is He


Wherever there a carcase be

There vultures gather, see

And after troubles in last days

Change in celestial ways


For sun shall be darkened, and moon

Light shall be dimmed, it soon

Stars fall from heaven, its powers

Be shaken in those hours


And then shall appear sure the sign

Of the Son of man fine

Sign in heaven, then all tribes mourn

For when they did Him scorn


Son of man comes in heaven's clouds

With power, great glory shrouds

And He shall send out His angels

Great sound of trumpet hails


Angels gather His chosen ones

They be His daughters, sons

Gathered from four winds, they be sure

Now with their Lord e'ermore

        As a lover of Christmas music (who isn't?) I appreciated your poem and song. May one of those Angels be with you this Christmas season. - Phil A.
