Maranatha, we long for your peace.
Maranatha, we long for your mercy.
Maranatha, we long for your coming, O God.
1 In your image you have fashioned us,
in the garden you made us;
you have given us your breath of life,
voice to praise your name,
voice to praise your name. [Refrain]
2 In our weakness we have turned from you,
turned from light to the darkness,
ever longing for salvation,
O Lord of light,
O Lord of light. [Refrain]
3 In your love you have sent your Son,
your salvation for ev'ryone;
Word incarnate, God's compassion,
hope for humankind,
hope for humankind. [Refrain]
4 We await your day of glory,
Christ Jesus, return for us.
Gentle King, Just Deliverer,
you will bring us home,
you will bring us home. [Refrain]
