Sovereign Lord, your promise stands:
Israel's glory in my hands -
He whose praises shall not cease.
Let your servant go in peace.
I have seen your salvation,
Light prepared for each nation.
Now before the people's face -
Hope of all the human race.
He shall cause your rise or fall -
Hope for all who on him call.
All on earth must make their choice,
Will you listen to his voice?
James Hughes (December 2017)
