Adventus

A prayer about Advent. 

With expectant waiting
we anticipate your coming.
Come close to us, Lord,
come very close.

Come, Alpha and Omega,
who is from before the ages.
Come, Son of Joseph and Son of Mary,
who went down to Nazareth to be obedient to them.

Come, Morning Star,
who named the stars.
Come, carpenter from Nazareth.
who knows the smell of planed wood.

Come, Beloved Son of God,
who knows the heart of God.
Come, Son of Man,
who knows the hearts of God’s people.

Come, Lord of Life and Prince of Peace.
Come, Dayspring and Rising Sun.
Come, Wonderful Counsellor.
Come Emmanuel, God with us;
God very close to us.

Amen.
