blessed are we, the fearful. though we long to be people of peace, we can’t lie
we are afraid.
afraid there wont’ be enough – enough resources, enough time, enough memories.
blessed are we who ask You for wisdom, show us what to turn from, what to set aside.
come Lord, that we might see you, move with You, keep pace with You.
blessed are we who ask that this Advent we might dwell together quietly in our homes.
come Lord, that we might be for others the peace they cannot give.
blessed are we who look to You and say God, truly, we are troubled and afraid. come govern our hearts and calm our fears.
Oh Prince of Peace, still our restless selves, calm our anxious hearts, quiet our busy minds.
