A song for Advent

Since we are starting the season of Advent, I thought appropriate to put parts of Redemption Song (from Bob Marley, heard in the cover of Moodswings):

Excerpts from Redemption Song

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds
Have no fear for atomic energy
Cause none of them can stop the time

How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look
Some say it’s just a part of it
We’ve got to fulfill the book

But my hand was made strong
By the power of the Almighty
We fought in this generation triumphantly

Won’t you help to sing, these songs of freedom
Cause all I ever had, redemption songs, redemption songs, redemption songs

And this is my prayer for redemption:

Yes, come Lord Jesus, and deliver us with the power of your might. Make us strong with your strength, so that we might seek to bring justice, peace, and salvation to our troubled world. Yea, come Lord Jesus, avenge your prophets who were slain by the evil sword and deliver us!
