TEAR OPEN THE HEAVENS, O God;
we are your children who long for your coming.
Sorrow, injustice, and fear surround us on every side.
With our hearts on bended knee, we cry to the heavens:
Come Lord, Jesus, set your people free!
Free us from the snares of darkness that drive us away from you,
that we may entrust ourselves to your love.
In the confidence of your love, we march toward Bethlehem
as our souls await the dawning of your redeeming light.
