Advent Calendar: Roman Angels 13

Angels on a column (c. 1975)
Church of Sant' Illario di Poitiers

See that your lamps are burning; replenish them with oil;
and wait for your salvation, the end of earthly toil.
The watchers on the mountain proclaim the Bridegroom near;
go meet him as he cometh, with alleluias clear.

Advent Hymn #68
From The Hymnal 1982
