You Are Our Salvation

You are our salvation
only, sometimes,
we don’t know we need to be saved

Sure we know you ‘saved’ us
and we are grateful
But really, most of the time,
we seem to get along quite well without your help

Until…
we realize that all is not well
we realize that all hope is gone
we realize that you and your salvation
are nowhere to be found

Save us, oh God of our salvation!
Save us from ourselves
Save us from our pride
Save us from our idols
Save us from our concepts of you
Save us!

Oh God
you are our salvation
We wait and hope
knowing that you will come

We pray in the name of your salvation enfleshed
