God of timeless grace, you fill us with joyful expectation:
make us ready for the message that prepares the way so that with uprightness of heart and holy joy we may eagerly await the kingdom of your Son, Jesus Christ;
who lives and reigns with you and theHoly Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Psalm 85:1-2,8-13
1 O Lord, you were gracious to your land:
you restored the fortunes of Jacob.
2 You forgave the iniquity of your people:
and covered all their sin.
8 I will hear what the Lord God will speak:
for he will speak peace to his people,
to his faithful ones, whose hearts are turned to him.
9 Truly his salvation is near to those that fear him:
and his glory shall dwell in our land.
10 Mercy and truth are met together:
righteousness and peace have kissed each other;
11 Truth shall flourish out of the earth:
and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12 The Lord will also give us all that is good:
and our land shall yield its plenty.
13 For righteousness shall go before him:
and tread the path before his feet.

O come, O come Emmanuel
