Dec. 14: more music for Advent

More juxtapositions of mourning and rejoicing for this season:

And in despair I bowed my head/There is no peace on earth I said…

God is not dead, nor does He sleep…

~~~

O Come, o come, Emmanuel/And ransom captive Israel/That mourns in lonely exile here…Come Thou Dayspring, come and cheer/Our spirits by Thine advent here…

Rejoice, rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee O Israel…
