The First Sunday in Advent

The Collect. 

Almighty God, give us grace that we may cast away the works of darkness, and put upon us the armour of light, now in the time of this mortal life, in which thy Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the quick and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal, through him who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, now and ever. Amen.

The Book of Common Prayer, 1928

 

 

Grace to be aware of Grace.

 Grace to banish the works of darkness.

 Light to be aware of Light.

 Light to armor against the darkness.

Grace and Light now

since

Jesus

visited

then.

Grace and Light

now

since

Jesus

shall come

visiting

again.

Cast

Your

Armor of

Grace and Light

‘Round my

waiting,

watching,

whirling,

wondering,

wishing

heart.
