Love, the Guest, is on the way

People, look east. The time is near
Of the crowning of the year.
Make your house fair as you are able,
Trim the hearth and set the table.
People, look east and sing today:
Love, the guest, is on the way.

Furrows, be glad. Though earth is bare,
One more seed is planted there:
Give up your strength the seed to nourish,
That in course the flower may flourish.
People, look east and sing today:
Love, the rose, is on the way.


  1. One of my favorite Advent hymns! I clicked on Dolly's picture and my daughter saw it and went crazy--such a beautiful cat. We would like to get an all white kitten; it would be so cool to have a white cat to go with our black cat.

    1. Yes, Dolly is a pretty girl, and our sweetheart. :) It would be cool to have white and black cats! There was a cat next door named Prince (who met his end this summer), but before we got Dolly, they used to be friends. When we took her in, she became protective of our property and wasn't so well disposed toward Prince anymore. LOL (she was a neighbor's cat at first, but ended up wanting to live with us)

    2. I meant to say the Prince was all black.
