O Lord of Ancient Israel, Come
Psalm 89:1-2a I will sing of your steadfast love, O God, forever; with my mouth I will proclaim your faithfulness to all generations. I declare that your steadfast love is established forever . . .
O Lord of Ancient Israel, Come~
Your people have proclaimed your steadfast love
and mercy throughout their sacred history.
They remind us of your faithfulness
to a people distressed, to a people oppressed,
to a people downcast.
You led them to freedom,
you fulfilled your promise of salvation,
you healed their brokenness and gave them hope.
You have done the same for us, again and again,
throughout our own life journeys.
Make us joyful witnesses to
your constant presence, great faithfulness
and abiding love.
