Some Processions for Advent

How does this look?

Advent I

Vigil Evensong

At Evening Prayer, after the Collect of Advent I and the two collects, a procession to the pulpit singing ‘Behold the Bridegroom Cometh’.

V. The voice of one crying in the wilderness.
R. Make straight the way of the Lord.

Let us pray.

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who didst will to restore all things in thy well-beloved Son, the King of kings and Lord of lords: Mercifully grant that all the kindreds of the earth, set free from the captivity of sin, may be brought under his most gracious dominion; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit ever, one God, world without end. Amen.

In the return, ‘Hark the Glad Sound! the Saviour Comes’.

V. The Spirit of the Lord is upon me.
R. Because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor.

Let us pray.

O GOD, who hast made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on the face of the whole earth, and didst send thy blessed Son to preach peace to them that are far off and to them that are nigh: Grant that all men everywhere may seek after thee and find thee. Bring the nations into thy fold, pour out thy Spirit upon all flesh, and hasten thy kingdom; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Morning Service

At Morning Prayer, after the Collect of Advent I and the other two collects: ‘Lo, He Comes with Clouds Descending’ or ‘Hark! a Herald Voice is Calling’.

Litany.
