God’s Messengers

Where angels of mortals
by prophesy or proclamation
the time of Advent
the season of waiting
a time for God’s messengers
to retake the stage

Too long has the world
charted the course
leading the peoples astray
away from the Christ
We must return the manger
to the Bethlehem stable
to worship the king
come to earth as a child

We each are called,
God’s sons and daughters
to turn from the world
and proclaim God’s love
to enter the stable,
humbly kneeling
before the Christ child
but also going
to spread the Good News

Christ returning, to the stable,
the world below him
to judge the world
and to bring us home
No one should be left here
no one unworthy
all offered redemption
by the way of the cross
