This shimmering Advent choral begins with the piano playing “Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus,” then slowly shifts to minor as the text speaks of waiting in darkness. The refrain returns to major as hope is born in a manger and in our hearts. The memorable chorus of “Shine the Light of Your Love” can be used throughout the Advent season with choir and/or congregation.
