O Flower of Jesse’s Stem, Come
2 Samuel 7:8 . . . thus you shall say to my servant David: “Thus says the God of hosts: I took you from the pasture, from following the sheep to be prince over my people Israel.”
O Flower of Jesse’s Stem, Come~
Grant us trust in your mighty power to save through the most unlikely of ways.
Long ago you led your servant David
from the pasture to the palace,
from shepherd to king.
You see beyond our lives as they are
to the possibilities that can be.
Inspire us to believe in your vision for us,
to live into our potential,
and to trust that you will guide us into becoming
all that you lovingly created us to be.
