“O God with Us”

O Emmanuel, our King and lawgiver, for whom the nations wait, their only Savior, come Thou, O Lord our God, be our salvation.

Drop down ye heavens from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness;
Let the earth open and bring forth salvation.

The Collect

Stir up, we beseech Thee, O Lord, give ear to our prayers and lighten the darkness of our hearts by Thy gracious visitation; through Jesus Christ Thy Son, our Lord.

The congregation sings:

                O Come, O Come EMMANUEL,
                And ransom captive Israel,
                That mourns in lonely exile here,
                Until the Son of God appear.
                Rejoice!  Rejoice!  Emmanuel

                Shall come to thee, O Israel.
