Come now long-awaited Jesus, come now the glorious Kindom of God, to bring your holy light into our increasingly dark world.

Come now long-awaited Jesus, come now the glorious Kindom of God, to awaken your holy peace within the collective heart of hurting humanity, and in the hearts of every wounded person around your world.

Come now long-awaited Jesus, come now the glorious Kindom of God, enliven forgiveness in our hearts, and should our wounds be too grievous forgive on our behalves.

Come now long-awaited Jesus, come now glorious Kindom of God, fill us with joyous wonder, that we may marvel at the beautiful diversity of our human family.

Come now long-awaited Jesus, come now the glorious Kindom of God, where the Golden Rule is practiced between all peoples everywhere.

Come now long-awaited Jesus, come now the glorious Kindom of God, and relieve this longing within our hearts.

Come now long-awaited Jesus, come now the glorious Kindom of God, to every tribe and every nation.  Amen.
