Emmanuel…

 

O come, Desire of nations,
bind in one the hearts of all mankind;
bid Thou our sad divisions cease,
and be Thyself our King of Peace.

In Memory…
Virginia Tech staff, students and their families

O God
We proclaimed You at Christmas
as “God with us” – Emmanuel.
We believe it is still true.You are our King of Peace.
You wait with us in this time.
You are with us in this time of mourning.
You walk through the deep shadows.
You hear the questions and see the tears.
You know the hurt, the anger, the pain and the loss.

You bore all of those things
and more
on the cross.

It is hard,
but we will try and leave them there
with You…
In your nail-pierced Hands….
Amen.
