Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence

Having written much on the subject of Christ’s first Advent in October and November, this month I am going to take the advice of the title of this month’s hymn and let the song speak for itself…

Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence

Let all mortal flesh keep silence, and with fear and trembling stand

Ponder nothing earthly minded, for with blessing in his hand

Christ our God to earth descendeth, our full homage to demand

King of Kings yet born of Mary, as of old on earth he stood

Lord of Lords in human vesture, in the Body and the blood

He will give to all the faithful, his own self for heavenly food

Rank on Rank the host of Heaven, spreads its vanguard on the way

As the Light of Light descendeth, from the realms of endless day

That the powers of Hell may vanish, as the darkness clears away
