Fourth Sunday of Advent

WELCOME


Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,

who has come to set the chosen people free.

The Lord has raised up for us a mighty Savior from the house of David.

Through the holy prophets, God promised of old

To save us from our enemies,

From the hands of all who hate us;

To show mercy to our forebears and to remember the holy covenant.

This was the oath God swore to our father Abraham:

To set us free from the hands of our enemies,

free to worship without fear,

holy and righteous in the Lord’s sight,

all the days of our life.


LIGHTING OF THE ADVENT CANDLE #2090 TFWS Verse 4


And you, child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High,

For you will go before the Lord to prepare the way,

To give God’s 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.

Gracious God, your servant Mary discovered new life growing within her and knew it to be your promised presence. In tender reverence for the holy mystery of your Incarnation, may we be as a womb for your blessed presence, ready to receive and nourish your Word in our lives, open to the stirrings of your Spirit within us. May we faithfully bear your love in the world, that by your grace Christ may be born in us. Amen.
