O Emmanuel, Come
Psalm 89:21, 24 My hand shall always remain with [David], my arm also shall strengthen him . . . My faithfulness and steadfast love shall be with him . . .
O Emmanuel, Come~
Ransom all those held captive
by loneliness, hopelessness, despair.
Give us faith to trust that you are with us,
that you come to us,
that you abide with us,
that you will never leave us.
You are God with us, our Emmanuel.
Be born in our world today and always
through our words, through our deeds,
through our lives,
as we seek both to receive and to live out
your steadfast love here on earth.
