Advent Calendar 2011: Week 1 Thursday

Fountains of Rome
Fountain in front of the Pantheon, Piazza della Rotunda

On Jordan’s bank the Baptist’s cry
announces that the Lord is nigh;
awake and hearken, for he brings
glad tidings of the King of Kings.

Advent Hymn # 76
from the Hymnal 1982

Thanks for the close-up view of this fountain. I don't think I've ever really looked at it--I think the impact of the Pantheon is so overwhelming that it tends to overshadow its neighbors. This is wonderful.
