ADVENT (2), by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Come,' thou dost say to angels
Last Line: And we will answer, 'come.'
Alternate Author Name(s): Alleyne, Ellen; Rossetti, Christina
Subject(s): Advent


'Come,' Thou dost say to Angels,
To blessed Spirits, 'Come':
'Come,' to the lambs of Thine own flock,
Thy little ones, 'Come home.'

'Come,' from the many-mansioned house
The gracious word is sent;
'Come,' from the ivory palaces
Unto the Penitent.

O Lord, restore us deaf and blind,
Unclose our lips though dumb:
Then say to us, 'I will come with speed,'
And we will answer, 'Come.'
