Week 1 – O Come, O Come, Emmanuel – Advent 2018

Bellwether_journal_cover_stamp-11Welcome to Advent 2018

This year we are going to blog our way through the whole season of Advent & Christmas sharing one song a day!

Today it’s the classic advent hymn that the church has been praying and singing for over a 1,000 years!! “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.” This ancient advent hymn is based in the O Antiphon prayers – a series of short prayers that explore images of Christ from the book of Isaiah that are fulfilled in the coming of Christ.

Lots to check out here:

  1. Great Advent hymn but just wondering wouldn’t it be more fitting to post it mid-Advent which would put it closer to the start of the use of O Antiphons (Dec 16/17) in this great season? Just a thought rather than a criticism.
