Our Messiah is Coming


We pause now to let the Light in.  

Our Messiah is coming.  Our Messiah is here. 

We pause now to let the rumours and murmurs of Hope stir. 

Our Messiah is coming.  Our Messiah is here. 

We pause now to breathe in deeply, Peace.  Peace for our world.  Peace for you.  Peace for me.  Peace for us.  

Our Messiah is coming.  Our Messiah is here. 

We pause now to let the gentle and persistent pressing-in of Joy quicken our hearts and enliven our senses.  

Our Messiah is coming.  Our Messiah is here. 

Here upon the ground, in the dust, in an infants wail and rosy fleshed newborn babe, the glory of God is revealed.  God is here to dwell.  The One who made us has come to live among us.

Our Messiah is coming.  Our Messiah is here. 

So, even as the darkness presses in and where fear and hopelessness seem to have the final say.  Here where our soul’s deepest longings cry out and yearn for home.  We turn our eyes towards this Light, this coming dawn, the coming Christ. 

Our Messiah is coming.  Our Messiah is here.  

For all of us: the dislocated and the broken, the weary and worn out, the trampled and downtrodden, the sin-sick and wayward.  For us, a Messiah has been born.  

Our Messiah is coming.  Our Messiah is here.

Jesus Christ, hope of the earth and joy of ev’ry longing heart.  Lord, come and set all things right.
