CARP Song Book
55. Carol of the Advent
C F C People look East, the time is near Em D G Of the crowning of the year; Make your house fair is you are able, Trim the hearth, and set the table. People look East and sing today, F G C 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. Birds, though ye long have ceased to build, Guard the nest that must be filled. Even the hour when wings are frozen He for fledging-time has chosen. People look East and sing today, Love the Bird is on the way. Stars keep the watch when night is dim, One more light the bowl shall brim. Shining beyond the frosty weather, Bright as sun and moon together. People look East and sing today, Love the Star is on the way. Angels announce to man and beast Him who cometh from the East, Set every peak and valley humming With the word, the Lord is coming. People look East and sing today, Love the Lord is on the way.
