Our Child, Draw Nearer

I had a lot of thoughts on my mind this morning, so I decided to spend 15 minutes in writing a short Advent poem.

"Our Child, Draw Nearer"

Spirit of Truth,
Heavenly Savior,
My desire today is you.

Christ, Redeemer,
My hope lies in you.

My fears grow deeper;
Lord, please draw nearer.
My God, come clearer:
My rest lies in you.

I am broken,
But Lord you have spoken:
In you I am whole again,
My strength lies in you.

Lord, I am blind
To the hurts of mankind,
Show me your mind,
I desire to see like you.

Holy Immanuel,
Prince of Peace,
Savior, Redeemer,
My freedom lies in you.

Christ-child, be born in me,
Set my soul free;
For you are the key:
My life is in you.
