Advent Tells Us, Christ Is Near

Advent tells us, Christ is near:

Christmas tells us Christ is here!

In Epiphany we trace

All the glory of His grace.

Those three Sundays before Lent

Will prepare us to repent;

That in Lent we may begin

Earnestly to mourn for sin.

Holy Week and Easter, then,

Tell who died and rose again;

O that happy Easter day!

"Christ is risen indeed," we say.

Yes, and Christ ascended, too,

To prepare a place for you;

So we give Him special praise,

After those great forty days.

Then, He sent the Holy Ghost,

On the day of Pentecost,

With us ever to abide:

Well may we keep Whitsuntide!

Last of all, we humbly sing

Glory to our God and King,

Glory to the One in three,

On the Feast of Trinity.
