Trish Wilson & Mother Gloria Head lighting the advent candles and reading.
verses 1, 2, 3, & 4 played by Lynn Garber
1 Light the Advent candle, one:
Now the waiting has begun;
we have started on our way,
time to think of Christmas day.
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.
4 Light the Advent candle, four:
Think of joy forevermore;
Christ Child in a stable born,
gift of love that Christmas morn.
Leader: The time of waiting and watching is here! Are you ready?
People: We are waiting for the Lord of peace to open our hearts.
Leader: The Lord of Peace comes to you this day to free you from your sins.
People: We are ready to receive the precious blessings of God.
Leader: Come, let us worship God who loves us dearly.
People: Let us praise God for God’s blessings in our lives. AMEN.
