O Lord of Ancient Israel, Come
Romans 1:2-3 . . . promised by God beforehand through the prophets in the holy scriptures, . . . descended from David according to the flesh.
O Lord of Ancient Israel, come~
You came to your people long ago.
appearing to Moses in the burning bush,
leading as a guiding cloud across the desert,
teaching through your commandments.
The prophets announced your coming
from the line of David,
and you fulfilled their hopes.
Throughout our sacred history
you have fulfilled your promises.
Grant us the passion
to fulfill our promises as well,
to love you, worship you and serve you
in all aspects of our lives,
now and forevermore.
