Stir up your pow'r, O Lord, and come.
Again we pray, ""Your will be done.""
May Advent blue to us foretell
the echo of Emmanuel.
Is heaven's moment far or near?
And when will Jesus reappear?
the coming dawn is our delight
in this, the darkest hour of night.
We could inside the church remain,
like dry ground watching for the rain.
We could decide to sit and wait
as jesus we anticipate.
But we must keep hands to the plow;
God's time is both not yet and now.
Our faith informs what we shall do.
May Christ return and find us true.
