O Emmanuel, Come
Titus 3:4-6 When the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, we were saved . . . in virtue of God’s mercy . . . which God poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior. . .
O Emmanuel, Come~
Ransom all those held captive
by loneliness, hopelessness, despair.
Give us faith to trust that you are with us,
that you come to us,
that you abide with us,
that you will never leave us.
You are God with us, our Emmanuel.
Be born in our world today and always
through our goodness, our loving,
as we seek both to receive and to live out
your steadfast love here on earth.
