first Sunday of Advent

"Almighty God, give us grace 
      that we may cast away the works of darkness,
      and put upon us the armor of light,
now in the time of this mortal life
      in which thy Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility;
that in the last day,
      when he shall come again in his glorious majesty
       to judge both the quick and the dead,
we may rise to life immortal;
       through him who liveth and reigneth with thee
       and the Holy Ghost,
              one God, now and for ever. Amen."

                                     - Book of Common Prayer, 1789
