Advent close of day at the wildlife sanctuary

Jesus, Redeemer of the world,
Word of the Father throned on high,
light from the light invisible,
and watchful guardian over all

Hymn 38 v.1 
The Hymnal 1982

Now, ere day fadeth quite, we see the evening light,
our wonted hymn outpouring;
Father of might unknown, thee, his incarnate Son,
and Holy Spirit adoring.

"O gladsome Light"
Hymn 36 v.2 
The Hymnal 1982

I am about to do a new thing;
   now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
   and rivers in the desert.

Isaiah 43.19

 I am like an owl of the wilderness,
   like a little owl of the waste places.
But you, O Lord, are enthroned for ever;
   your name endures to all generations. 
You will rise up and have compassion on Zion,
   for it is time to favour it;
   the appointed time has come. 

Psalm 102:6, 12, 13

Come, thou long expected Jesus,
born to set thy people free;
from our fears and sins release us,
let us find our rest in thee.

Hymn 66 v.1 
The Hymnal 1982
