Stay a little longer with us, Jesus.
The night is long and our hope is fleeting.

Stay a little longer with us, Jesus.
The world is raging and our strength is faltering.

Stay with us, Jesus,
to give us courage
for the all-consuming fire
to whip through our lives.

Stay with us, Jesus,
to teach us stories
of heaven’s mysteries
to renew our resolve.

Stay with us, Jesus,
to show us visions
that startle our lives
to worship and wonder.

Stay a little longer with us, Jesus.
The call is immense and our commitment is imperfect.

Stay a little longer with us, Jesus.
The light is overwhelming and our hearts are full.
