Lord You Wait for Us – An Advent Meditation for 2014

This year’s Advent video is inspired by Isaiah 30:18 So the Lord must wait for for you to come to him so he can show you his love and compassion. One of the reasons I did not manage to get it uploaded before the beginning of Advent was because I needed to spend time reflecting on the verse and allow it to seep into my soul before I worked on it. I hope you enjoy it.

Here are the words to the prayer/meditation:

LORD, YOU WAIT  FOR US

TO COME AND SEE YOU

YOU WAIT TO SHOW YOUR LOVE

UNTIL WE SEEK YOU

LORD, YOU WAIT FOR US

TO COME AND SEE YOU

TO GATHER ROUND YOUR MANGER

WITH FRIEND AND STRANGER

LET US COME WITH THE HUNGRY

AND FEED THEM

LET US COME WITH THE HURTING

AND COMFORT THEM

LET US COME WITH THE DESPISED

AND WELCOME THEM 

LORD, YOU WAIT FOR US

TO COME AND SEE YOU

TO SHINE YOUR LIGHT

TO SHOW YOUR LOVE

TO PROCLAIM YOUR PEACE

LET US GATHER TOGETHER

REMEMBERING WHAT IS FULFILLED

PREPARED FOR WHAT WE MUST STILL DO

LET US COME TO THE ONE

WHO WAITS FOR US TO LOVE.
