4th Sunday of Advent (Year A, 2010)

For our entrance song today we took the proper text from the Missal – Rorate caeli desuper – and sang it to its traditional chant melody, in the excellent free translation by Luke Connaughton. At the end we sang the refrain with the Latin text, with everyone repeating it a final time with the English text:

Come Saviour, come like dew on the grass,
Break through the clouds like gentle rain.
