O Clavis David/O Key of David
This particular year, this cry to "come and deliver us from the chains of our prisons, we who sit in darkness and without life" feels particularly poignant. Advent 2014 shall forever be remembered with images of tear gas and protests on the streets of Ferguson, MO, with a garish "Season's Greetings" sign glowing overhead. Images of thousands marching for change. Images of so much pain burned into our memories.
This year there is really nothing to say except, "O Come, O Come Immanuel."
O Clavis David, O Key of David, deliver us. Unbind us from the prisons of our world. Sit with us in our darkness. Free us from ourselves. O Clavis David, O Key of David, Come.
