Grant Us

It's the first week of Advent. I have never been overly consistent at taking Advent seriously. This year I think changes are going to start here, in what I write. So here's my first poem of Advent.

grant us so to hear
a world calling for newness
that we may rise up and build

grant us so to see
temples built to this world
and vision your Kingdom

grant us so to dwell
in a kingdom like yours
one we wish to inhabit

grant us an answer
to the call we dare not voice
for we are growing weary

I have always liked Advent, but I probably couldn't have come up with a reason why before last year. That's when I finally became comfortable with the idea of eschatological hopes.
