Advent to Candlemas (Vol. 2)

Advent And Christmas

  1. The roaring pressure of the world
    Invades our inner space,
    The greedy bedlam of the till
    Reaches our quiet place:
    In Advent when we need to wait
    Most think that it is here
    And as we walk to Bethlehem
    Mangers are everywhere.
  2. At this great time of Penitence
    We need more room to pray
    And though we need to think and fast
    We rush and feast each day:
    The headlong dash for fellowship
    Denies an empty place;
    But in preparing for God's Son
    We need more time and space.
