Friday from the Third Sunday of Advent

A Collect for Guidance

Heavenly Father, in you we live and move and have our being: We humbly pray you so to guide and govern us by your Holy Spirit, that in all the cares and occupations of our life we may not forget you, but may remember that we are ever walking in your sight; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Venite,(Come) Psalm 95:1-7

Our King and Savior now draws near: Come, let us adore him.


Come, let us sing to the Lord; *let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation.Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving *and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.

Our King and Savior now draws near: Come, let us adore him.

For the Lord is a great God, *and a great King above all gods.In his hand are the far reaches of the earth. * The heights of the hills are his also.The sea is his, for he made it. *His hands have molded the dry land.

Our King and Savior now draws near: Come, let us adore him.

Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee, *and kneel before the Lord our Maker.For he is our God,and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand. *Oh, that today you would hearken to his voice!

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
