Advent day 24 (2020)

 


 

People of God: prepare!

God, above all, maker of all,

is one with us in Christ.

Maranatha!

Come, Lord Jesus!

God, the mighty God,

bends down in love to earth.

Maranatha!

Come, Lord Jesus!

God with us, God beside us,

comes soon to the world he has made.

Maranatha!

Come, Lord Jesus!

We are God’s children,

we seek the coming Christ.

Maranatha!

Come, Lord Jesus!

 

God, the mighty God, bends down in love to earth…

To those doctors and nurses bracing themselves for another wave, come, Lord Jesus!

To those teachers and head teachers besides themselves with exhaustion, come, Lord Jesus!

To those families devastated beyond bearing by the loss of a precious one, come, Lord Jesus!

To those living alone and longing for human touch, come, Lord Jesus!

To those who have built a dream into a livelihood only to have to close its doors for good, and those who have served only to be laid off, come, Lord Jesus!

To those who fear what tomorrow brings, come, Lord Jesus!

To those on their knees, bend down, embrace, weep with them, come, Lord Jesus!
