 Lord Jesus, you are the light of the world.
Come, Lord Jesus.

You are light in our darkness.
Come, Lord Jesus.

Son of God, save us from our sins.
Come, Lord Jesus.

Son of Mary, deepen our love.
Come, Lord Jesus.

Bring hope into the lives of all people.
Come, Lord Jesus.

Give your peace to all nations.
Come, Lord Jesus.

Be the joy of all who love you.
Come, Lord Jesus.

Bring unity among all who believe in you.
Come, Lord Jesus.

Bless us as we gather here in your name.
Come, Lord Jesus.

Lord Jesus, stay with us always.
Come, Lord Jesus.

Let us pray:

May Christ give us his peace and joy,
and let us share them with others.
All peace and glory are his for ever.



Come, long-expected Jesus. 
Excite in me a wonder at the wisdom and power of Your Father and ours. 
Receive my prayer as part of my service of the Lord 
who enlists me in God's own work for justice. 

Come, long-expected Jesus. 
Excite in me a hunger for peace: peace in the world, 
peace in my home, peace in myself. 

Come, long-expected Jesus. 
Excite in me a joy responsive to the Father's joy. 
I seek His will so I can serve with gladness, singing and love. 

Come, long-expected Jesus. 
Excite in me the joy and love and peace 
it is right to bring to the manger of my Lord. 
Raise in me, too, 
sober reverence for the God who acted there, 
hearty gratitude for the life begun there, 
and spirited resolution to serve the Father and Son. 

I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, 
whose advent I hail.



O shepherd of Israel, hearken, 
O guide of the flock of Joseph!
Rouse your power, and come to save us.
O Lord of hosts, restore us, 
if your face shine upon us, then we shall be safe.
O Lord of hosts, how long will you burn with anger 
while your people pray?
You have fed them with the bread of tears
and given them tears to drink in ample measure.
You have left us to be fought over by our neighbors, 
and our enemies mock us.
O Lord of hosts, restore us,
if your face shine upon us, then we shall be safe.


A Root shall come forth from the stock of Jesse
And a Flower shall rise out of his root!
And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him —
the spirit of wisdom and of understanding, 
the spirit of counsel and of fortitude, 
the spirit of knowledge and of godliness.
The people that walked in darkness 
shall see a great light,
For a Child is born to us 
and a Son is given to us.
To Him all power shall be given. 
His Name shall be: Wonderful One, 
Strong God, Eternal One, Prince of Peace. 
He shall sit on the throne of David, 
And He will found a new Covenant 
which will last for ever and ever.


Dear God, all over the world now, 
the children of Holy Mother Church are singing: 
"Send down dew from above, you heavens, 
and let the skies pour down upon us 
the rain we long for, Him, the Just One. 
May He, the Savior, 
spring from the closed womb of the earth!" 
We know, Lord, and we have seen, 
what drought does to the land. 
We know, too, and have seen, 
the ravages of frost and cold. 
We have walked in barren fields and up dry hills, 
through dead, silent woods and lifeless valleys, 
and along thirsty beds of once flowing streams. 
We have seen, clearly enacted for us upon the land, 
what our life would be without You. 
We can understand, now, 
how we should long for Your coming. 
Come, dear Lord and Savior, 
and do not delay! 
Rise up in Your power and come! 
Let the rain of Your grace water the parched soil of our souls. 
Let the warmth of Your love thaw the coldness of our indifference. 
Let the life of Your Body and Blood 
vitalize our deadened energies, 
and stir us up to fruitful labor in Your vineyard.

O eternal Father, 
rouse our hearts out of the sleep of sin, 
so that we may clear the path of Your Son into our souls. 
Each year in Advent, 
You gladden us with the thought of our redemption. 
Grant us, we pray You, that, 
as we receive Your Son as our Redeemer now, 
we may, in the future, 
gladly and confidently meet Him as our Judge.
