2010 Advent Devotion for web Scripture  – Matthew 24:1–14

Now We Wait Again
Tune: Picardy

Now we wait again, O Jesus, For your coming in our day;
We are weary with our anguish, Unto you we humbly pray:
Let your healing touch our sorrows, Lead us in your holy way.

Now we wait again, Creator, For your kingdom that shall be;
We have threatened death to our planet, Unto you we make
     our plea:
Act with justice and your mercy, Make us one community.

Now we wait again, O Spirit, For your presence in our lives,
Faith and hope and love are feeble, Unto you we lift our cries:
Give us courage, strength, and wisdom, With your grace our
     only prize.

Now we wait again, O Savior, For your advent as of old,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Unto you we sing so bold;
Glory be to God and Amen, For salvation shall be told!

The Rev. Dr. S. Thomas Niccolls
