Encouraging saints around the world for 15 years !! (1991-2006)


Of old the Prophets have foretold
(to the tune of "It Came Upon The Midnight Clear" - CAROL)


Of old the Prophets have foretold, The coming of our Lord,
The promise God in Eden gave, He surely would afford,
That He Who is all-powerful, Would stand in sinnerís stead,
And in His love for you and I, Would bruise the Serpentís head.

Throughout the ages man has looked, For He Who was to come,
True faith in Godís assuring word, Has their salvation won;
ĎTill suddenly Judeaís night, Shone as the break of day,
With Heavenís Host in joyful song, The Advent to proclaim.

Twas to the poorest of the earth, God did these tidings send,
A Savior unto you is born, This night in Bethlehem,
With joyful haste, they go in faith, The Christ child to behold,
And spread abroad the wondírous words, The Herald Angels told.

Let us to all this message bring, Who for redemption look,
That God His promise has fulfilled, Our sins from us He took,
The manger-Child has for them paid, With His own precious blood,
And opened to us Heavenís gates, By His abounding love.
