The Fourth Monday of Advent
Stir up thy power, O Lord, and come among us, and with great might succor us; that whereas, through our sins and wickedness, we are sore let and hindered in running the race that is set before us, thy bountiful grace and mercy may speedily help and deliver us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with thee and the Holy Ghost, be honor and glory, world without end. Amen.

O Clavis David
O Key of David, and Sceptre of the house of Israel;
that openest, and no man shutteth,
and shuttest, and no man openeth:
Come and bring the prisoner out of the prisonhouse,
and him that sitteth in darkness and the shadow of death.
