O Lord of Ancient Israel, Come
Micah 5:2 But you, O Bethlehem of Ephrathah, . . . from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose origin is from of old, from ancient days.
O Lord of Ancient Israel, Come~
Your origin is from ancient days,
yet you continue to be present in our lives.
Remind us that you still move
in our world, in our time,
as you have throughout our sacred history.
Grant us courage and hope
as we journey forward,
to trust and remember that
your steadfast love and mercy
have always been,
and shall be with us
