O Lord of Light, Come
Isaiah 2:5 O house of Jacob, come, let us walk in the light of God.
O Lord of Light, Come~
As we journey further into the Advent season,
and the nights become longer,
do not let the darkness fill our hearts.
Enkindle us to be a light of hope
to those living in the despair
of poverty, homelessness or hunger;
of war or natural disaster;
of loneliness, abuse, grief or illness.
Fill our hearts with
the burning love of Christ.
Grant that, through acts of mercy,
we may offer this light as hope
to the cold, dark places in our world.
