In Advent we hear ancient stories of pregnant women, bewildered men, angry prophets and hopeful elders. With this great cloud of witnesses, we 21st-century people find ourselves in good company when we seriously wonder what is about to break in the world or break through.

O Holy One is a thirteen-song cycle, each piece functioning as a particular piece of the ancient worship liturgy.

If your service has this kind of iconic structure, in O Holy One you pretty much have yourself a full slate of liturgical songs for the entire season of Advent. If your service is less formal, it's a baker's dozen Advent-themed songs to use here and there throughout the season.

O Holy One is an effort to both behold and participate in a world where the Holy One is ever emptying into creation.

The Word of God Fleshed
John 1.1-14 with Psalm 82.3-4
The Word of God Fleshed

The Word of God fleshed out among us

The Word of God fleshed out among us

Justice-- we long for justice

We long for the Word of God fleshed out among us

The light of life shining into our world

The light of life shining into our world

Justice-- we long for justice

We long for the light of life shining into our world
