O Adonai

O Adonai,
Ruler of the house of Israel,
you appeared in the burning bush to Moses
and gave him the law on Sinai:
Come with outstretched arm to save us.

Come, Lord Jesus.

The Lord is the Ruler of the house. As adopted sons and daughters of our heavenly Ruler, we are brought under the wings of Christ's fulfillment of the law through our baptisms into His death and resurrection. Only by His perfect fulfillment of the law are we set free from sin and sanctified by his Holy Spirit, so that we may not be found wanting when we are justly judged on the last day.
