I first heard this song a few years ago and I love it! For me it perfectly captures the essence of advent – prepare him room.

O behold, the mystery now unfolds
See the star shine on the virgin foretold
Angels sing and light up the sky
Hope rings out in a newborn’s cry
Swing wide, you ancient gates
For Christ is born today!
Prepare Him room
Prepare Him room
Let the King of glory enter in
 
God with us, the promise has come to be
This, the one the prophets were longing to see
In the darkness a blazing light
To the hungry the words of life
His kingdom now is near
For those with ears to hear
Prepare Him room
Prepare Him room
Let the King of glory enter in
Prepare Him room
Prepare Him room
Let the King of glory enter in
 
Oh, our hearts, as busy as Bethlehem
Hear Him knock, don’t say there’s no room in the inn
Through the cradle, cross, and grave
See the love of God displayed
Now He’s risen and He reigns
Praise the Name above all names!
Prepare Him room
Prepare Him room
Let the King of glory enter in
Prepare Him room
Prepare Him room
Let the King of glory enter in
Let the King of glory enter in
