Advent Poems

Focus verse 16.  Jer. 33:14-16.  14

The days are surely coming, says the Lord, when I will fulfill the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah. 15 In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David, and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. 16 In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will live in safety. And this is the name by which it will be called: “The Lord is our righteousness.”

Justice and safety / limited / hope in Advent Promise

Scattered / Lost / Need a Shepherd

righteousness safe house / All Saints / open

do your best / step back / let the Lord

So many friends are falling / aching, suffering / Come, Lord Jesus, come

God of the watching ones / the waiting ones / Roll away the stone

The name of the Lord / a banner to wave / Hope springs eternal

Judah and Israel / barren lands given new life/promises kept

Judah saved / Jerusalem safe / David

Justice, righteousness/world needs saving and safety / David 2.0

Power and justice/righteousness, safety and peace / bestowed by the Lord  

welcomed visitors
received with warmth at All Saints
one Sunday long past
greeting new and old seekers
every resurrection day
