Original, Acoustic instrumental by Steve Eulberg
Stir up your power, O Lord and come
Into our weary, broken lives
Renew our vigor, give us hope
Stir up, O Lord, and come.
Long we have waited, we’ve anticipated
the birth in our lives of your son
Prepare us to welcome and faithfully serve in
the reign of the coming one.
Our neighborhood waits for the hope that awakes
sleeping promises seeming untrue
Hear now the groaning of our pain and longing
to be resurrected in you.
Protect us and save us by your strength unslave us
to power, injustice and greed
O, God-who-is-with-us, you did not forget us
and from all sin we are now freed.
