Congregation: Refrain
Come, morning star, light our way in our darkest night.
Come, light of God, grant us peace, gently shining bright.
Come, holy dawn, sun of love, fill us with your light.

Soloist/Choir:
Week 1. Waken now, my people! Morning soon will rise.
Hope is rising warmly. Open up your eyes. (Refrain)

Week 2. Change your hearts, my people! Trust, repent and pray.
With the Spirit’s fire bear fruit: prepare the way. (Refrain)

Week 3. Patience now, my people! God’s promises are sure.
Justice quells the mighty, empowering the poor. (Refrain)

Week 4. Courage, now, my people! Rise up and have no fear.
Dare to love with joy for God With Us is here. (Refrain)
