O King of nations, and their Desired, the Cornerstone who make all one: come and save our race, whom you formed out of clay. Amen.
"I will make with them a covenant of peace; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them....My dwelling will be with them; I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Thus the nations shall know that it is I, the Lord, who make Israel holy." (Ezekiel 37:26-28) There are so many ways we try to fill the emptiness in our hearts. A new car, a better stereo system, a job promotion. Yet when we have everything we think we wanted, the hole, the yearning, is still there. God has made us for himself, and he alone can fill the bottomless longing in our soul. O come, desire of nations!
