For you, O Lord, my soul in stillness waits,1. O Lord of Light, our only hope of glory,
truly my hope is in you.
Your radiance shines in all who look to you,
Come, light the hearts of all in dark and shadow. (Refrain)
2. O Spring of Joy, rain down upon our spirits,
Our thirsty hearts are yearning for your Word,
Come, make us whole, be comfort to our hearts. (Refrain)
3. O Root of Life, implant your seed within us,
And in your advent draw us all to you,
Our hope reborn in dying and in rising. (Refrain)
4. O Key of Knowledge, guide us in our pilgrimage,
We ever seek, yet unfulfilled remain,
Open to us the pathway of your peace. (Refrain)
