Advent: week 3

We hang up our lyres
on the willows there

We can’t bear to sing Your songs
in this foreign land

because our enemies took over
the place where You dwell

because we know our real enemy
is us

who is there that can comfort us
who is there who could absolve

when will we have pardon
when will our hard labor be over

we will wait for the love of the Lord
to come and bring us home
