Second Sunday of Advent
O God Who Comes,
Were it not for your great love, we would not have---
--the privilege of knowing you;
--the experience of your presence;
--the forgiveness of our sins;
--the gift of eternal life; or
--the blessing of your grace.
We praise you that your great love leads you to give and give and give.
Inspire us by your love to love you in return by giving ourselves up; cause us always to remember that loving you and loving others go hand in hand.
Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
