O Emmanuel, who antiphons
two voices
planet and human,
climate and creatures,
rich nations with their power
and poor nations with their hopes,
the galaxy and a single cell,
the beginning Word
and the Accord just breathed
gaveled, promised in Paris,

come, for this too is Advent –
arise, wake from sleep –
for the time is nearer than it was.

Come, good tidings.
Come, light shining in darkness.
The desert blooms.
