Advent Week 3, 2013 (Guide and Song)
The third week of Advent begins this Sunday, December 15. It is not too late to join in the process of celebrating Advent. You can still download our FREE Advent Guide if you are interested, or use our Advent Week 3 Reading page. It includes verses for each day of Advent. Though the guide walks you through the lighting of a traditional Advent wreath, you can keep it simple and use whatever candles you have in the house (see our Advent Wreaths and Candles page for ideas). Or, just read the Scripture and sing the song provided below.
Every Friday, I am sharing a new Advent song. Here is a beautiful 17th (or 18th) century hymn called “Oh Come Divine Messiah,” (this link is to a You Tube video with lyrics).
You can learn more about this song at at Hymns and Carols of Christmas.
