Earth was waiting, spent and restless
Earth was waiting, spent and restless,
with a mingled hope and fear,
faithful men and women praying,
"Surely, Lord, the day is near:
the Desire of all the nations--
it is time he should appear!"
Then the Spirit of the
to a Virgin meek came down,
and he burdened her with blessing,
and he pained her with renown;
for she bore the Lord's
for his cross and for his crown.
Earth has groaned and labored for him
since the ages first began,
for in him was
hid the secret
which through all the ages ran--
Son of Mary, Son of David,
Son of God, and Son of Man.
