The First Sunday in Advent (Advent Sunday)
Celebrant: Surely the Lord is coming soon.
People: Amen. Come Lord Jesus!
Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which your 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 living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Because you sent your beloved Son to redeem us from sin and death, and to make us heirs in him of everlanting life; that when he shall come again in power and great glory to judge the world, we may without shame or fear rejoice to behold his appearing.
