O Blessed Hope, Come
Titus 2:13 . . . we wait for the blessed hope and the manifestation of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
O Blessed Hope, Come~
We began this Advent journey in hope,
which has now been fulfilled by your coming.
Blessed be your name, Holy One.
You have fulfilled our longings by
releasing us from the bondage of sin,
redeeming us from the depths of despair,
rescuing us from the doom of death.
On this day we celebrate your unending gifts
of hope, peace, joy and love
which you have so generously given.
Send us forth in grateful response
to offer these blessings,
to bring forth the healing of our world.
