By Joel Melton


… and we wait.


we know the end,

how the promise was kept,

and is being kept.

He has and is

and will come.


the advented Light

still breaks —

is adventing —

in our night-like days.

we wait like winter.


the curse is being reversed.

redemption’s cycle

spins in the song

He began.

so sing along.


heaven’s threshold glows

in pulsing joy.

He too waits, eagerly

in patient love.

so we wait.


so come and become.

advent in our weary hope.

fulfill the days

we wait…
