Come to teach me the way of truth.
O Lord of Israel,
Come to redeem me with an outstretched arm.
O Root of Jesse,
Come to bring me new life; do not delay.
O Son of David,
Come to open my prison doors and set me free.
O Radiant Dawn,
Come to bring light into the darkness in my life.
O King of all Nations,
Come to save me and give me peace.
Stay with me and send me forth in your name.
