The Lord Made Known to Israel

This hymn for Advent describes the people of God.   It appears to be based on 1 Peter 2:9 .

The words were written by Irish Roman Catholic priest Donal Murray.

It was published in the 1973 Veritas Hymnal - which is still in print.

With meter 86 86 76 86, it is set to the tune FOREST GREEN by English composer Ralph Vaughn-Williams (1872–1958), which is more commonly associated with "O Little Town of Bethlehem".

Lyrics

The Lord made known to Israel,
His great redeeming plan.
He speaks to us his people now
Through Christ his Son made man.
We have been called like Israel,
To witness to God’s grace,
A people he has made his own,
A royal priestly race.

God brought his people to the mount,
As we are gathered now,
To hear His holy word proclaimed
And their allegiance vow.
We have been called like Israel,
To witness to God’s grace,
A people he has made his own,
A royal priestly race.

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY The Lord made known to Israel,
His great redeeming plan.
He speaks to us his people now
Through Christ his Son made man.
We have been called like Israel,
To witness to God’s grace,
A people he has made his own,
A royal priestly race.

God brought his people to the mount,
As we are gathered now,
To hear His holy word proclaimed
And their allegiance vow.
We have been called like Israel,
To witness to God’s grace,
A people he has made his own,
A royal priestly race.
