    Scripture Reading:                                                               Isaiah 40:1-5

     

    1 I waited patiently for the LORD;
    he inclined to me and heard my cry.

    2 He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog,
    and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.

    3 He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God.
    Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the LORD.

    4 Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust,
    who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after a lie!

    5 You have multiplied, O LORD my God,
    your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us;
    none can compare with you!

    I will proclaim and tell of them,
    yet they are more than can be told.

     

    Prayer of Invocation

    Leader:      O Lord, that you would tear open the heavens
    and come down to us.

    People:       O that you would shock us with your presence…
    like fire causes water to boil.

    Leader:      We have become comfortable,
    and your holiness reminds us of our sinfulness.

    People:       In the past we were in darkness. You wooed us with

                            Your presence and came to us and saved us.

    Leader:      All our words and deeds are like a filthy cloth.

    People:       We need to be washed clean.

    Leader: Today we light one candle to remind us our need for a savior.

    Come, Lord, restore us. Our world is in need of Jesus the

    savior. Let your light shine on us, that we may see our sin.

    Come and dwell with us, that we may be washed clean

    and made new. Amen.

    People:   O Emmanuel, Jesus Christ,

    Desire of every nation, Savior of all peoples,

    Come and dwell among us.

     

    O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

    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!

    O come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer,

    Our spirits by Thine advent here.

    Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,

    And death’s dark shadows put to flight.

    Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel!

    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!

    O come, Desire of nations, bind In one the hearts of all mankind;

    Bid Thou our sad divisions cease, And be Thyself our King of peace.

    Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel!

    Latin: c. 9th Century. Tr. John M. Neale & Henry S. Coffin.

    We Respond to God’s Presence

     

    Joy to the World!

    Joy to the world! The Lord is come: Let earth receive her King;

    Let every heart prepare Him room,

    And heaven and nature sing, And heaven and nature sing,

    And heaven and heaven and nature sing.

    Joy to the world! The Savior reigns: Let men their songs employ;

    While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains

    Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat the sounding joy,

    Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

    No more let sins and sorrows grow, Nor thorns infest the ground;

    He comes to make His blessings flow

    Far as the curse if found, Far as the curse if found,

    Far as, far as the curse is found.

    He rules the world with truth and grace, And makes the nations prove

    The glories of His righteousness

    And wonders of His love, And wonders of His love,

    And wonders, wonders of His love.

    Psalm 98 adapted by Isaac Watts. Music: George Friedrich Handel

    Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus

    Come, Thou long-expected Jesus, Born to set Thy people free;

    From our fears and sins release us; Let us find our rest in Thee.

    Israel’s strength and consolation, Hope of all the earth Thou art;

    Dear Desire of every nation, Joy of every longing heart.

    Born Thy people to deliver, Born a child and yet a King.

    Born to reign in us forever, now Thy gracious kingdom bring.

    By Thine own eternal Spirit rule in all our hearts alone;

    By Thine all sufficient merit Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
