We wait in hope

We wait in hope for hope to come: 

promised of old; the righteous one.

Help us to watch, expect and pray

and then to greet Messiah's day.


We read the story of your plan:

this world redeemed by heaven's Son.

Grace breaks upon the present time;

mercy and hope through David's line. 


We hear the prophet's voice ring clear:

'changed hearts and lives are needed here'.

So, when the Spirit fires your Church,

make us a sign for all who search. 


We go to share this great Good News:

heirs of the promise - we will choose

to live in hope that all may sing

praises to Christ, the infant king.
