Hope Seeks Us Out

We live in a world that’s gloomy and dark,
We look for some light to give us that spark.
We turn to the media to find that good news,
But any glimmer of hope is generally defused.

Where do we go when we’re looking for Hope?
Some go to church or seek out the Pope.
We walk aimlessly around our neighborhood streets
Searching for hope through our harsh December heat.

We seek out hope among the bling in the shops.
We seek out hope among the food on our cooktops.
We seek out hope among our friends and family.
We seek out hope around the tinsel covered tree.

But centuries ago, Mary praised out in song
For within her arms, humanity was saved from all wrong.
This hope of the world remains with us today
We’re renewed in God’s gift – through the child in the hay.

This advent theme of hope leaves us with no doubt
We praise you God that Your hope seeks us out.

Rev Jason Grimsey, Minister, Caboolture Region Uniting Church
