People Look East lyrics:

People, look east
The time is near
Of the crowning of the year
Make your house fair as you are able
Trim the hearth and set the table
People, look east and sing today
Love, the guest, is on the way.

Furrows, be glad
Though earth is bare
One more seed is planted there
Give up your strength the seed to nourish
That in course the flower may flourish
People, look east and sing today
Love, the rose, is on the way.

Birds, though you long have ceased to build
Guard the nest that must be filled
Even the hour when wings are frozen
God for fledging time has chosen
People, look east and sing today
Love, the bird, is on the way.

Stars, keep the watch
When night is dim
One more light the bowl shall brim
Shining beyond the frosty weather
Bright as sun and moon together
People, look east and sing today
Love, the star, is on the way.

Angels, announce with shouts of mirth
Christ who brings new life to earth
Set every peak and valley humming
With the word, the Lord is coming
People, look east and sing today
Love, the Lord, is on the way.
