Advent Prayer


‘What can I give him, Poor as I am?

If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb,

If I were a wiseman, I would do my part,

But what I can I give him, give my heart.’

Poem emphasising the purpose of Advent

Advent is a time to wait,

Not quite time to celebrate.

Light the Candles one by one,

Til the advent time is done.

Christmas Day will soon be here,

Time for joy and time for cheer.

Lighting the Advent Candle:

O God,
as light comes from this candle,
may the blessing of Jesus Christ come to us,
warming our hearts and
brightening our way.
May Christ our Savior bring life
into the darkness of this world,
and to us, as we wait for his coming.
