Veni, Emmanuel

Oh, that you would tear the heavens open and come down

— in your presence the mountains would quake,

as fire sets brushwood alight, as fire makes water boil —

to make your name known to your foes;

the nations would tremble at your presence,

at the unexpected miracles you would do.

(Oh, that you would come down,

in your presence the mountains would quake!)

— Isaiah 64.1-2
