Offertory Anthem: O Come, O Come Emmanuel: arr. John A. Behnke

Communion Anthem: Out of the Wintry Gloom: Richard Shepherd

Out of the wintry gloom of night, 

Out of the darkness of our days; 

Our Sun appears, a wondrous sight, 

A morning of unbroken praise.

O come, our Dayspring, and our Cheer,
the herald calls, and we obey;
Now lift us by your Advent here, 

The message comes, "Prepare a way."

Come now, O Prince of Glory, come! 

Come quickly, as dawn follows night;
And dwell with us, here make your home,
So all the world may see your light.

Postlude: “Sleepers Wake!” A Voice Astounds Us: Johann Gottfried Walter
