Maranatha

Come, O Christ the Lord!

Maranatha, written by Fr. Lucien Deiss (1921-2007) was first published in 1965 as part of Biblical Hymns and Psalms (Vol. 1). Born in France, Fr. Deiss was an expert scholar on scripture and liturgical music. His hymns are sung throughout the Universal Church. The following video features a Spanish version of Maranatha. In the Liturgy of the Hours it is used during Advent.
