7 Beautiful Hymns to Sing During Advent

“Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.” 

Advent is a traditional season celebrated the four weeks leading up to Christmas Day, in recognition and anticipation of the coming of Jesus. The Latin word for Advent means coming. Jesus came to earth, born as a babe to Mary and Joseph on earth. He also comes to us presently, as we accept salvation through Christ and receive the Holy Spirit. Advent also reminds us of Jesus’ future coming, when He will return to earth once again to establish God’s Kingdom. God’s plan always included our rescue and redemption through Christ. “We have a message of spectacular rescue:” John Piper reflects, “the love of God has rescued us from the wrath of God.”
