..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

Awaiting Jesus at Christmas

Jesus, how we have waited for You!
This advent as we considered Your first coming,
now we long for Your second.

You who have ignited a fire on the earth
come and burst forth in our midst!

We have filled our lamps with oil,
it is You, our Lord, that we await
with great expectation.

O Come, Desire of Ages, come.
Come in fullness to inherit
all that the Father destines for You.

Fill our hearts.
Fulfill our souls.
Bring our spirits at last home.
