From Rev. Dave's Desktop:
Advent at St. Martin's by-the-Lake
Our Advent and Christmas theme Long Expected Jesus is based on the well loved Advent hymn Come Thou Long Expected Jesus. We will pray these words beginning this week, the first Sunday of Advent:
Come Thou long expected Jesus,
Born to set Thy people free.
From our fears and sins release us,
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Come, O Savior of the World,
Anxiously we wait for Thee.
