ReClaim/Sola Hymn: #n/a
1 The advent of our God Shall be our theme for prayer;
Come, let us meet him on the road And place for him prepare.
2 The everlasting Son Incarnate stoops to be,
Himself the servant's form puts on To set his people free.
3 Come, Zion's daughter, rise To meet your lowly king,
Nor let your faithless heart despise The peace he comes to bring.
4 As judge, on clouds of light, He soon will come again,
And all his scattered saints unite With him on high to reign.
5 Before the dawning day Let sin be put to flight;
No longer let the law hold sway, But walk in freedom's light.
6 All glory to the Son, Who comes to set us free,
With Father, Spirit, ever one Through all eternity.
