You know what time it is,
how it is now the moment for you to wake from sleep.
For salvation is nearer to us now
than when we became believers;
the night is far gone, the day is near.
Let us then lay aside the works of darkness
and put on the armor of light.
Come, let us worship God.
—based on Romans -12, NRSV
Daily Advent Word: GO
Lord God Almighty,
King of glory and love eternal,
you are worthy at all times to receive adoration, praise, and blessing;
we praise you now for sending your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ,
for whom our hearts wait, and to whom,
with you and the Holy Spirit, one God,
be honor and dominion, now and forever. Amen.
