O Lord Thou shalt open my lips and my mouth shall declare Thy praise.

We Rejoice for Our Bridegroom Cometh

III Sunday of Advent - I Class

Rejoice in the Lord always: again I say, rejoice. Let your modesty be known to all men: for the Lord is nigh. Be nothing solicitous: but in every thing by prayer let your petitions be made known to God. (Ps) Lord, Thou hast blessed Thy land: Thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob. Glory to the Father. Rejoice in the Lord always.
We are joyful because we know that the Lord is coming to separate us from our sins and join us to Himself in the joy that is so great only He can give it.
