As streets fill with shoppers,
bright lights and tempting offers,
Christmas songs and children’s laughter,
You lead us along a different path
to a desert river and a prophetic voice.
A call to repentance.
A call to service.
A call to immerse ourselves
in living water that will never run dry.
A call to prepare a way in our own lives
for the Saviour of the world to enter in.
To know the touch of tender mercy
and rest in your forgiving love.
For your faithful prophets
and your Living Word
we give You thanks.
