The Fourth Sunday in Advent (Annunciation Sunday)
Celebrant: Surely the Lord is coming soon.
People: Amen. Come Lord Jesus!
Stir up your power, O Lord, and with great might come among us; and as we are sorely hindered by our sins from running the race that is set before us, let your bountiful grace and mercy speedily help and deliver us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, 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.
O Morning Star,
splendour of light eternal and sun of righteousness:
Come and enlighten those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death.
