LOVE: THE FOURTH SUNDAY OF ADVENT

LEADER: Give ear, O Great Shepherd, who leads us like a flock. You who are enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth!

RESPONSE: Restore us, O God of hosts; let Your face shine, that we may be saved.

LEADER: How long must we pray? How long must we fast? We need Your love. We need Your love. We need Your love!

RESPONSE: Restore us, O God of hosts; let Your face shine, that we may be saved.

LEADER: Restore us, O God, through the power of your love. In a time when even love is in need of love, we turn to You. Through Your love, show yourself mighty and strong.

Light the three purple candles and the one pink candle.

ALL: We light the candle of love, and we believe in the transformative power of Your love. May the love we experience from You, O Lord, inspire the love we extend to others. Amen.
