Instantis Adventum Dei
For soprano and alto voices with chamber organ
1.
Now is the time of the coming of God.
Let us be earnest and ardent in prayer
and wrapped about in songs of celebration.

2.
For the eternal Son is not ashamed
to be fleshed as we are,
so that he can set us free.

3.
Hurry to meet him, Sion,
this gentle and merciful one,
who stretches out to you, strong in peace.
4.
He is near. Soon on radiant clouds
the Judge will come and gather us,
his scattered ones, into his bliss.

5.
And the evil fruits of night will shrivel
in the light of day as Adam
puts on a new flesh and throws away the old.

6.
The greatest praise to you, the Son,
who is our liberator, with the Father
and the Holy Spirit for ever.
