Lighting of the Second Candle of Advent
The Second Advent Reading: Isaiah 9:2-7

             The people who walked in darkness

                        have seen a great light;

            those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,

                        on them has light shone.

            You have multiplied the nation;

                        you have increased its joy;

            they rejoice before you

                        as with joy at the harvest,

                        as they are glad when they divide the spoil.

            For the yoke of his burden,

                        and the staff for his shoulder,

                        the rod of his oppressor,

                        you have broken as on the day of Midian.

            For every boot of the tramping warrior in battle tumult

                        and every garment rolled in blood

                        will be burned as fuel for the fire.

            For to us a child is born,

                        to us a son is given;

            and the government shall be upon his shoulder,

                        and his name shall be called

            Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,

                        Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

            Of the increase of his government and of peace

                        there will be no end,

            on the throne of David and over his kingdom,

                        to establish it and to uphold it

            with justice and with righteousness

                        from this time forth and forevermore.

            The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.

           

And Therefore Be Merry
