Hymn # 257 “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” st. 3,4 

3. O come, O come, O Lord of might, as to your tribes on Sinai’s height 

in ancient times you gave the law in cloud, and majesty, and awe. 

Rejoice! Rejoice! 

Emmanuel shall come to you, O Israel. 

4. O come, O Branch of Jesse, free your own from Satan’s tyranny; 

from depths of hell your people save, and give them vict’ry o’er the grave. 

Rejoice! Rejoice! 

Emmanuel shall come to you, O Israel. 

Confession and Forgiveness 

P: Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, who alone does wondrous things. 

C: Blessed be God’s name forever. Amen 

Beloved, now is the time to wake from sleep. Let us confront our sins, and confess them to the one who is merciful and just. 

(Silence is kept for reflection) 

P: God of new beginnings, 

C: we confess that we have not welcomed your holy reign. We have strayed from your paths. We dishonor one another and your creation. Purify us with your refining fire and set us again on your way of love, that we may bring fruit worthy of repentance, and welcome your coming among us. Amen. 

P: People of God, a new thing is growing in our midst, a tender branch, a living sign. By water and the Spirit you are joined to this wonder. You have put on + Christ, and your sins have been washed away. Rejoice in the way of the Lord. 

C: Amen. 


L: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion 

of the Holy Spirit be with you all. 

C: And also with you. 


L: Let us pray: 

All: Stir up our hearts, Lord God, to prepare the way of your only Son. By his coming nurture our growth as people of repentance and peace; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Hymn # 249 “On Jordan’s Banks the Baptist’s Cry” 


L: Together with the whole church, we confess our faith: 

All: I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. 

I believe in Jesus Christ, 

God’s only Son, our Lord, 

Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, 

born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, 

was crucified, died, and was buried; 

He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. 

He ascended into heaven, 

He is seated at the right hand of the Father, 

And he will come to judge the living and the dead. 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, 

the holy catholic Church, 

the communion of saints, 

the forgiveness of sins, 

the resurrection of the body, 

and the life everlasting. Amen
