Advent, FourthWeek, Sunday

Hark! My lover – here he comes, Running to me across the mountains, Across the hills. My lover speaks: he says to me, "Arise,my beloved, my beautiful one, and come!" "Let me see you, Hear your voice, For your voice is sweet, And you are lovely." Song of Solomon 2, 8-14 Lord, you are the One I cling to in life. Help me serve you, yes, but help me love you, too. You are so loveable, if only I can see. O RADIANT DAWN: splendor of eternal light, sun of justice: come shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death.
