O Radix

Today, in Mercy, we pray:

O Root of Jesse’s Stem,
O Radical Love, who gives us,
and all Creation,

come deliver us from power
turned upon itself
in vanity and greed,

from the selfishness
that curls the heart
away from reverence
and generosity
toward every living being.

As You were tied,
in human flesh,
to Jesse’s generations
and so to us –

tie us to one another
by your Eternal Love,
that we may grow with You
to depths of Mercy,
to heights of Love.

Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus!

Music: O Radix Jesse
