Angels, From the Realms of Glory” 

Fourth Week of Advent The Candle of Love
“Blessed be the Lord God of Israel,
    for he has visited and redeemed his people
        and has raised up a horn of salvation for us
    in the house of his servant David,
        as he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets from of old,
    …that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies,
        might serve him without fear,
    in holiness and righteousness before him all our days.”

And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High;
    for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways,
        to give knowledge of salvation to his people
    in the forgiveness of their sins,
        because of the tender mercy of our God…”          

                                                                                                – Selections from Luke 1:68–79

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son,
    that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
