O Keeper of Promises, Come
Romans 1:2-3 … promised by God beforehand through the prophets in the holy scriptures, the gospel concerning the Child of God, descended from David according to the flesh.
O Keeper of Promises, come~
Remind us how you came to your people of old.
You appeared to Moses in the burning bush,
and as a guiding cloud across the desert.
The prophets announced your coming
and you fulfilled their hopes.
When we become hopeless or down-hearted,
may we look back in our sacred history,
and in our own lives,
remembering all the times
you have made yourself known to us.
Help us to draw strength from the past when our future looks bleak,
and to trust your promise to love us always.
