Mike and Molly and Baby at Advent

December 2

John 1:14


Mark 1:4–8

Advent wreaths are one way of helping us to prepare for Christmas. The wreaths should include four candles in a circle, a new candle being lit each of the Sundays of Advent. It may include a fifth candle which is the Christmas candle and of course will be lit together with the other four only on Christmas day. Advent wreaths may be very ornate or they may be very simple. Maybe you will want to make one for use in your home.

Tune: Joy to the World

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make his blessings flow
Far as the curse is found.
Far as the curse is found,
Far as, far as the curse is found.
He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of his righteousness,
And wonders of his love.
And wonders of his love,
And wonders, and wonders of his love.
