“When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?” (Luke 18.8)

As advent dawns, another year

Both full of hope and full of fear

Slips forth and fills our atmosphere.

                          But we are yet still waiting.

For though He came once long ago

So that salvation we might know

We have not let His Spirit grow

                       And so we are still waiting.

We’ve been affected by the Fall,

We have not heard His simple call

To share His love and peace with all,

                      Instead we are still waiting.

Indeed, we have not turned the tide

By all the efforts we have tried,

The door must open from outside,

                    And so we are still waiting.

Yet He will come again one day

When men and angels both shall say

He is the Truth, the Life, the Way,

                   And He can end our waiting.

And so for now, we watch and pray

And try to follow and obey

Until we welcome Him and say,

                “Come, Jesus, we’ve been waiting.”

    This is beautiful … my blessed mother who passed away a little over a year ago, would have loved this. She loved the Lord and now is sitting with Him reading His word.
