Opening Prayer

 

Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

 

Benedictus with Advent Antiphon

 

Antiphon: The Lord has come to his people and set them free.

 

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel; *

     he has come to his people and set them free.

He has raised up for us a mighty savior, *

     born of the house of his servant David.

Through his holy prophets he promised of old,

that he would save us from our enemies, *

     from the hands of all who hate us.

He promised to show mercy to our fathers *

     and to remember his holy covenant.

This was the oath he swore to our father Abraham, *

     to set us free from the hands of our enemies,

Free to worship him without fear, *

     holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life.

You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High, *

     for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,

To give his people knowledge of salvation *

     by the forgiveness of their sins.

In the tender compassion of our God *

     the dawn from on high shall break upon us,

To shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, *

     and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; *

     as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,

     world without end. Amen.

 

Antiphon: The Lord has come to his people and set them free.

Come Light Our Hearts

by Rain for Roots

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For you, O Lord, our souls in stillness wait 
For you, O Lord, our souls in stillness wait 
Truly our hope is in You 
Truly our hope is in You 

O Lord of life, our only hope 
Your radiance shines 
On all who look -- to You in the dark 
Emmanuel come, come light our hearts 

For you, O Lord, our souls in stillness wait 
For you, O Lord, our souls in stillness wait 
Truly our hope is in You 
Truly our hope is in You 

O Joy above all other loves 
In you we find more than enough 
We come as we are, O heal and restore 
Come light our heartsts

 

 

The Lord's Prayer

 

Our Father, who art in heaven,

     hallowed be thy Name.

     Thy kingdom come, thy will be done,

     on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,

     as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power,

     and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
