Advent 3 – A hymn based on Matthew 11 vs 2-11

1	God's presence was seen in the person of Jesus 
	where people found healing and wholeness and grac
	miraculous wonders and love without measure, 
	the touch of his hands and the look of his face.
	
2	So this was the answer when John asked the question, 
	was Jesus Messiah, God's chosen, the one 
	ordained to bring peace and God's reign to the people,
	embodying hope for the days yet to come.
	
3	The signs of God's being are seen in the present
	when people are living with Jesus in faith.
	The hope of God's kingdom is real when our actions 
	embody Christ's loving with freedom through grace.
