Come, Lord Jesus is an Advent anthem that incorporates the immortal Hymn to Joy by Ludwig van Beethoven. Suggested corresponding lectionary readings include Isaiah 12: 2-6, Zephaniah 3: 14-20, Luke 3:7-18 and Philippians 4:4-9. One basic homiletical theme is the Coming Savior who brings victory over sin and sadness through the wonderous light of His empowering love.
