Trinity Choir Anthem: “People Look East”

Arranged by the late James R. Lenney, beloved music director of Trinity
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.

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 to man and beast
Him who cometh from the East.
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.
