10 The Prayer Response cont. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

11 The Responsive Reading Leader: You who fear the LORD, praise Him! All you descendants of Jacob, glorify Him, And fear Him, all you offspring of Israel! People: For He has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; Nor has He hidden His face from Him; But when He cried to Him, He heard. Leader: My praise shall be of You in the great assembly; I will pay My vows before those who fear Him.

12 The Responsive Reading People: The poor shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek Him will praise the LORD. Let your heart live forever!

It will be recounted of the LORD to the next generation, People: They will come and declare His righteousness to a people who will be born, That He has done this.

14 The Old Testament Jeremiah 31:31-34 (NKJV) 31 “Behold, the days are coming, says the L ORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— 32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the L ORD. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says theL ORD : I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.

15 The Old Testament Jeremiah 31:31-34 (NKJV) 34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

16 The Prayer of Confession Almighty God, Father of our Lord, Jesus Christ, maker of all things, judge of all men, we acknowledge and bewail our manifold sins and wickedness, which we from time to time most grievously have committed, by thought, word and deed, against thy Divine Majesty, provoking most justly Thy wrath and indignation against us.

17 The Prayer of Confession We do earnestly repent, and are heartily sorry for these our misdoings, the remembrance of them is grievous unto us. Have mercy upon us, have mercy upon us most merciful Father; for Thy Son our Lord, Jesus Christ’s sake, forgive us all that is past, and grant that we may hereafter serve and please Thee in the newness of life, to the honor and glory of Thy name, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

18 The Scripture Reading Psalm 80: 1-7 1 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, You who lead Joseph like a flock; You who dwell between the cherubim, shine forth! 2 Before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh, Stir up Your strength, And come and save us! 3 Restore us, O God; Cause Your face to shine, And we shall be saved!

19 The Fourth Sunday of Advent Leader: Love’s memory is long. As we come to the last Sunday of Advent, we recall the many times we have been here before with still so much to do and so much love left unexpressed. The Hebrew Bible lesson today recalls a promise to King David, which the church has often understood to be fulfilled in the birth of Jesus. Love’s promise is often kept in unexpected ways.

20 The Fourth Sunday of Advent People: God’s love endures forever. In a world where even evergreens turn dry and brittle, God’s love is the one reality on which we can rely. Today we prepare for the greatest expression of that love, as we listen once more for the Word in the words.

21 The Scripture Reading Romans 1:1-7 1 Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God 2 which He promised before through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures, 3 concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh, 4 and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead. 5 Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name,

22 Fourth Sunday of Advent Leader: God’s love endures forever. Through acts as simple and common as the birth of a baby, God transforms the world, and God’s promises are kept. It is that expression of faithful love we anticipate and celebrate this day. It is that promise that brings light to our deepest night.

23 Fourth Sunday of Advent People: So, as we light the fourth candle in eager anticipation of God’s greatest promise fulfilled, what else can we do but name this candle Love?

24 Gloria Patri Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; and to the Holy Ghost; As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen, Amen.

25 The Sanctus It is very right and our bounden duty, that we should at all times, and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, O Lord, Holy Father, Almighty, Everlasting God.

26 The Response Therefore with angels and archangels, with all the company of heaven, we laud and magnify Thy glorious name, evermore praising Thee, and saying, “Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of hosts, heaven and earth are full of Thy glory, Glory be to Thee, O Lord Most High,” Amen.

27 The Prayer of Humble Access We do not presume to come to this Thy table, O merciful Lord trusting in our own righteousness, but in Thy manifold and great mercies. We are not worthy so much as to gather up the crumbs under Thy Table. But thou are the same Lord, whose property is always to have mercy;

28 The Prayer of Humble Access grant us, therefore, gracious Lord, so to eat the flesh of thy dear Son Jesus Christ and to drink His Blood, that our sinful souls and bodies may be made clean by His death and washed through His precious blood and that we may ever more dwell in Him and He in us. Amen.

29 The New Testament Hebrews 5:5-10 (NKJ) Hebrews 5:5-10 (NKJ) 5 So also Christ did not glorify Himself to become High Priest, but it was He who said to Him: “You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.” 6 As He also says in another place: “You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek”; 7 who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear,

30 The New Testament Hebrews 5:5-10 (NKJ) Hebrews 5:5-10 (NKJ) 8 though He was a Son,yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. 9 And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him, 10 called by God as High Priest “according to the order of Melchizedek,” 8 though He was a Son,yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. 9 And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him, 10 called by God as High Priest “according to the order of Melchizedek,”

31 All Things Come of Thee All things come of Thee, O Lord, And of Thine own have we given Thee. Amen.

66 The Consecration institution, in remembrance His death and passion, may be partakers of His most blessed body and blood; who in the same night that He was betrayed, took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it, and gave it to His disciples saying, “Take eat; this is My body which is given for you;

67 The Consecration Do this in remembrance of Me, Likewise after supper He took the cup; and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them saying, “Drink ye all of this; for this is My blood of the New Testament, which is shed for you and for many, for the remission of sins, do this as often as ye drink it, in remembrance of Me.” Amen.

68 The Prayer of Acceptance O Lord and Heavenly Father, we Thy humble servants desire Thy Fatherly goodness, mercifully to accept this our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving, most humbly beseeching Thee to grant, that by the merits and death of Thy Son Jesus Christ, and through faith in His blood, we and Thy whole Church may obtain remission of our sins.
