Hope in this Moment by Raymond A. Foss
Hope in this moment
rising in Advent
waiting for Christ’s coming
to this lowly world

His promise ever new
the fulfillment revealed
God from the beginning
setting about to heal this place

In the coming of the Christ-child
God became a man
walking on the dusty roads
teaching us his ways

Love, as a servant
humbleness, even death
going to the cross for us
healing our brokenness

Rising in victory
the grave, death could not hold him
rising to the clouds of heaven
until he returns in victory

Hope in this moment
rising in Advent
waiting for Christ’s coming
for a hopeful people
the living and the dead

To rise with him to glory
to walk the streets of gold
to see the mansions for us
as has been foretold

To come before our Master
our God and our King
to thank him for all of this
in hope and gratitude
