Five Favorite Advent Hymns to Celebrate the Season
While the world around us celebrates Christmas, as faithful Catholics, we live out the Advent season in our lives. We put up the Advent wreath, pray more fervently, and perform extra acts of spiritual and corporal works of mercy.
This year, I want to focus on the beauty of the Advent season and prepare for the coming on Christ at Christmas. One way to do that is focus on the holy hymns that remind us Christ is not yet here, but is coming soon. Here are five of my favorite Advent hymns:
- O Come, O Come Emmanuel
2. Gabriel’s Message (The Angel Gabriel From Heaven Came)
3. O Come Divine Messiah
4. The Yearning
5. Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence
