O Borning God

      
O Come, Beloved,
in this night of our travail
in which we cannot see;
breathe with us, in us,
and be the saving arm around us.

O Life-making Word,
speak your light in our heartbreaking darkness,
and call this word into being anew.

O Borning God,
on this night
wrap all our understanding in your mystery,
shroud in darkness all our knowing
of how you are among us,
bundle tightly our wisdom
in your smallest box,
and come to us otherwise.

O Intimate Dawning,
bear us through the night,
bestow your secret gifts,
and birth us into a new day,
childlike again.

O Dearest Child,
on this holy night
gather us around you
and draw out from us
our deepest love
for you and for this world
in which you are hidden.

O Loving One,
come and be with us.
