LIGHTING THE ADVENT WREATH

BY LYNN GARBER


SINGING -LIGHT THE ADVENT CANDLE-VERSES 1,2, 3 ONLY


1 Light the Advent candle, one:

Now the waiting has begun;

we have started on our way,

time to think of Christmas day.


Refrain

Candle, candle, burning bright,

shining in the cold winter night;

candle, candle, burning bright,

fill our hearts with Christmas light.


2 Light the Advent candle, two:

Think of humble shepherds, who

filled with wonder at the sight

of the child of Christmas night.


3 Light the Advent candle, three:

Think of heavenly harmony;

angels singing ""Peace on earth""

at the blessed Savior's birth.


APOSTLES CREED

I believe in God, the Father almighty,

   creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,

     who was conceived by the Holy Spirit

     and born of the virgin Mary.

     He suffered under Pontius Pilate,

     was crucified, died, and was buried;

     he descended to hell.

     The third day he rose again from the dead.

     He ascended to heaven

     and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.

     From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

     the holy catholic* church,

     the communion of saints,

     the forgiveness of sins,

     the resurrection of the body,

     and the life everlasting. Amen

PG 211    O COME, O COME, EMMANUEL verses 1, 2, 6, & 7


1. O come, O come, Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel, that mourns in lonely exile here until the Son of God appear. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.


2. O come, thou Wisdom from on high, and order all things far and nigh; to us the path of knowledge show and cause us in her ways to go. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.


6. O come, thou Dayspring, come and cheer our spirits by thy justice here; disperse the gloomy clouds of night, and death's dark shadows put to flight. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.


7. O come, Desire of nations bind all peoples in one heart and mind. From dust thou brought us forth to life; deliver us from earthly strife. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel


PRAYER


THE LORDS PRAYER

Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, For ever and ever. Amen.

PG 238          ANGELS WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH


1. Angels we have heard on high sweetly singing o'er the plains, and the mountains in reply echoing their joyous strains. Gloria, in excelsis Deo! Gloria, in excelsis Deo!


2. Shepherds, why this jubilee? Why your joyous strains prolong? What the gladsome tidings be which inspire your heavenly song? Gloria, in excelsis Deo! Gloria, in excelsis Deo!


3. Come to Bethlehem and see Christ whose birth the angels sing; come, adore on bended knee, Christ the Lord, the newborn King. Gloria, in excelsis Deo! Gloria, in excelsis Deo!


4. See him in a manger laid, whom the choirs of angels praise; Mary, Joseph, lend your aid, while our hearts in love we raise. Gloria, in excelsis Deo! Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
