O Holy Word, Come
Isaiah 2:3b For out of Zion shall go forth instruction, and the word of God from Jerusalem.
O Holy Word, Come~
Your prophets have spoken your word of truth
since ancient days,
your child came to speak your word of truth
to the world years ago,
and we are called to speak your word of truth
Open our ears to hear that word,
our eyes to see that word:
of justice for those who are oppressed,
of good news for those who are poor,
of hope for those in despair.
Anchor us in your word of hope,
in your promise of peace,
in your love for all people.
Make us conveyers of hope for our world.
