Something new is breaking forth
    We can’t quite pin it down
Excitedly we watch and wait
    Restless and impatient

We string the lights & hang the greens
    While singing songs of joy
Reading words of hope and peace
    And praying love endures

We prepare for the Nativity
    God’s presence in our midst
In fact God’s been here all along
    If we had eyes to see

We want the time to swiftly fly
    It’s Christmas that we long for
But when our journey moves so fast
    We miss more than we know

So let us spend these next four weeks
    In faithful expectation
Anticipating what’s in store
    For those who will receive it
