Praise the Lord,
for He comes to redeem His people.
In ages past,
the prophets told of the Lord’s mercy
and His desire
to deliver His people from their fears
into His presence.
In this Advent season
we await stars and angels
to guide us towards God’s love,
yet as we gather in worship today
and share faith and food,
we will be reminded of God’s loving presence
in every activity under heaven,
shining into the darkness of our fears
and lifting us to peace.
