An Advent Lament

Return, Oh Lord and bring to us
land where pain and suffering don’t last
Return, Great King and grant to us
The peace and love from which we’ve been cast
Come, Holy Spirit, dwell in us
as from age to age we await the coming
Of the Son who was a perfect sacrifice for us
The Perfect Lamb to whom we are succumbing
