We wait in hope
But what about when hope seems lost?
We wait in wonder,
But what about when wonder is gone?
We wait patiently,
But we are so impatient.
We wait with love,
But it is quickly fading.
O Come, O come Emmanuel
Even when our hearts seem hard.
Come to change our hearts,
So that we may never fully lose
All hope, wonder,
Patience, and love.
Come and fill us with your mercy
And compassion so that we might
Never lose sight again.
Come. Be with us.
Stay with us.
O Emmanuel we
Need you most right now.

Nice, Clare. Thank you for putting that out for so many of us to see!
