Beloved in Christ as we await the great festival of Christmas let us prepare ourselves so that we may be shown its. true meaning Let us hear in readings from Holy Scripture how the prophets of Israel foretold that God would. visit and redeem his waiting people Let us rejoice in our carols and hymns that the good purpose of God is being. mightily fulfilled Let us celebrate the promise that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will bring all people and all. things into the glory of God s eternal kingdom, But first let us pray for the needs of his whole world for peace and goodwill over all the earth for the mission and. unity of the Church for which he died and especially in this country and within this community. And because this of all things would rejoice his heart let us at this time remember in his name the poor and the. helpless the hungry and the oppressed the sick and those who mourn the lonely and the unloved the aged and the. little children and all those who know not the Lord Jesus or who love him not or who by sin have grieved his heart. Let us also remember before God his pure and lowly Mother and all those who rejoice with us but upon another. shore and in a greater light that multitude which no one can number whose hope was in the Word made flesh and. with whom in this Lord Jesus we for evermore are one. These prayers and praises let us humbly offer to God in the words which Christ himself taught us. Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory for ever and ever Amen. The People sit,The Bidding Carol What sweeter music.
What sweeter music can we bring We see him come and know him ours. Than a carol for to sing Who with his sunshine and his showers. The birth of this our heavenly King Turns all the patient ground to flowers. Awake the voice Awake the string The darling of the world is come. Dark and dull night fly hence away And fit it is we find a room. And give the honour to this day To welcome him to welcome him. That sees December turned to May The nobler part Of all the house here is the heart. Why does the chilling winter s morn Which we will give him and bequeath. Smile like a field beset with corn This holly and this ivy wreath. Or smell like a meadow newly shorn To do him honour who s our King. Thus on the sudden Come and see And Lord of all this reveling. The cause why things thus fragrant be What sweeter music can we. Tis he is born whose quickening birth Than a carol for to sing. Gives life and lustre public mirth The birth of this our heavenly King. To heaven and the under earth,Text Robert Herrick 1591 1675.

Then the eyes of both were opened and they knew that they were naked and they sewed fig leaves together and made. loincloths for themselves They heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden at the time of the evening. breeze and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden. But the LORD God called to the man and said to him Where are you He said I heard the sound of you in the. garden and I was afraid because I was naked and I hid myself He said Who told you that you were naked Have. you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat The man said The woman whom you gave to be with. me she gave me fruit from the tree and I ate Then the LORD God said to the woman What is this that you have. done The woman said The serpent tricked me and I ate The LORD God said to the serpent Because you have. done this cursed are you among all animals and among all wild creatures.

Out of the dust and clay Or do it them come nigh, And in his nostrils breathed life For if that thou doth eat thereof. E en as the Scriptures say Then surely thou shalt die. And then in Eden s Paradise But Adam he did take no heed. God placed him to dwell Unto that holy thing, That he within it should remain But did transgress God s holy law. To dress and keep it well And so was wrapt in sin,Chorus Chorus. Now let good Christians all begin, An holy life to live Now mark the goodness of the Lord. And to rejoice and merry be Which God for humans bore. For this the season is Whose mercy soon God did extend. To us for to restore, And then within the garden he And then for to redeem our souls.
