LIGHTING OF THE ADVENT CANDLE #2090 TFWS Verse 3
Merciful God, you sent your messengers the prophets
To preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation.
Give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins,
That we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ, our Redeemer;
Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
One God, now and forever. Amen.
