Not quite the version you're likely used to, but finally one that truly expresses the JOY that Christ has come to this Earth.
Merry Christmas to everyone! We have finally reached the reason for Advent - both the first, and the present, although the latter continues as we are careful to be awake and ware, proclaiming to all who have the capacity to hear, that the long-awaited Messiah is coming.
Take all that you've learned this season, and apply every single day, for our present Advent continues, and we have a job to do - to make sure that each and every person knows it, and is prepared.
Almighty God, who hast given us thine only begotten Son to take our nature upon him and as at this time to be born of a pure virgin: Grant that we, being regenerate and made thy children by adoption and grace, may daily be renewed by thy Holy Spirit; through the same our Lord Jesus Christ, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the same Spirit ever, one God, world without end. Amen!
