  • Waiting In Silence

    Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
    we are your people, we long for you, Lord.
    God ever with us, Emmanuel,
    come, Lord Jesus, Maranatha!

    Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
    we are your people, we trust in your love.
    O Sun of Justice, true Prince of Peace,
    come with your justice, Lord, Maranatha!

    Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
    we are your people, Lord, we seek your truth.
    Wisdom Incarnate, teach us your way;
    show us the path of life, Maranatha!

  • Open the Heavens

    Open the heavens, Lord; come to your people.
    Hide not your face, O God.
    Open the heavens, Lord, come to your people.
    Open the heavens and come.

    Look on the sheep of your pasture, Lord.
    Water your vineyard again. Scattered and broken,
    return to our aid. Open the heavens and come.

    Wake, awake, O Israel; see your light has come.
    Rise and clothe yourself in strength,
    know your Lord is near.

    Lift up your eyes to the heavens, today.
    Listen to hear when he comes.
    Know that salvation will break like the dawn.
    Open the heavens and come.

  • Emmanuel

    Emmanuel, Emmanuel, his name is called
    Emmanuel. God with us, revealed in us,
    his name is called Emmanuel.

    Prepare the way, prepare the way,
    a voice cries out: “Prepare the way.”
    A desert voice, “Make straight his paths,”
    a voice cries out: “Prepare the way.”

    He brings good news, he brings good news,
    the Son of God, he brings good news.
    The reign of God is now at hand,
    the Son of God, he brings good news.

  • Bestir Thy Power

    Bestir thy power and come, Lord!
    To save our sin-laden race; reveal thy bounty
    and goodness, diffuse thy splendour and grace.

    Lift your eyes to the hill, seek the Saviour
    until he appears. It is God who comes to our aid;
    God incarnate our ransom has paid.

    From the Lord comes release, he makes evil
    to cease all around. Night and day, he guards us
    from harm; we depend on the strength of his arm.

  • Enter In The Wilderness

    Enter in the wilderness, the Lord is coming,
    in the desert make the highway straight.
    Every valley shall be lifted up before him,
    every mountain levelled at his feet.

    God comes, run out to meet him;
    God comes, hurry to greet him; God comes,
    try to be ready, for the King is on his way, so…

    Christ comes, now we will heed him; Christ
    comes, all of us need him; Christ comes, hope
    of all nations, Sun of Justice, Prince of Peace, so…

  • Lift Up Your Heads

    Lift up your heads to the coming King,
    Bow before him, and adore him, sing.
    To his majesty, let your praises be;
    pure and holy, giving glory to the King of kings. [2]

  • Be Born In Us

    Be born in us, Incarnate Love. [2]
    take our flesh and blood and give us your humanity.

    Take our eyes and give us your vision;
    Take our minds and give us your pure thought.

    Take our feet and set them in your path;
    take our hands and fold them in your prayer.

    Take our hearts and give them your will to love.

  • Come To Set Us Free

    Come to set us free, come to make us your own.
    Come to show the way to your people, your
    chosen. Open our lives to the light of your
    promise. Come to our hearts with healing,
    come to our minds with power,
    come to us and bring us your life.

    You are light which shines in darkness,
    Morning start which never sets.
    Open our eyes which only dimly see
    the truth which sets us free.

    You are promise of salvation, you are
    God in human form. Bring to our world
    of emptiness and fear the Word we long to hear.
