Isaiah 52: 7–10; Ps 98; Hebrews 1; 1–4; John 1: 1–4
Almighty God, you make us glad with the yearly remembrance of the birth of
your Son Jesus Christ: Grant that, as we joyfully receive him as our redeemer,
we may with sure confidence behold him when he shall come to be our judge;
who is alive and reigns with you and Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
