Love’s Promised Peace (Fourth Sunday of Advent)

From Isaiah 7:13-14:  “Then Isaiah said, ‘Hear then, O house of David!  Is it too little for you to weary mortals that you weary my God also?  Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign.  Look, the young woman is with child and shall bear a son and shall name Him Immanuel.'”

Seeing life’s uncertainty

Searching heavens far beyond

God’s love offers gift of peace

Sending to earth, Savior’s bond


Tracing roots of future Prince

Sensing blessed hope through time

Bethlehem stable breathes love

Transforming man’s paradigm


Bearing His Son, born this day

Filling Mary with God’s love

Angelic voices praising

Singing with joy high above


Lasting, grace-filled love shall save

Bringing wayward sheep back home

Good Shepherd walking this land

Gifting peace to always roam


Declaring new covenant

Shining with love’s promised peace

Joyous light born in manger

Blessing hope’s faithful, new lease
