Our Morning Offering – 2 December – Thursday of the First week of Advent
Dear Saviour, Haste!
Venez divin Messie
By Abbé Simon-Joseph Pellegrin (1663-1745)
Dear Saviour, haste!
Come, come to earth.
Dispel the night
and show Your Face
And bid us hail
the Dawn of grace.
O come, Divine Messiah,
The world in silence waits the day
When hope shall sing its triumph,
And sadness flee away.
This is the Refrain from a beautiful Advent Hymn by Abbé Simon-Joseph Pellegrin, a French Cluniac Monk, Poet, Composer and Playwright.
