Advent Quotes: Book of Common Prayer

Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness and put on the armour of light,
now in the time of this life, in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; So
that, at the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge the living and the
dead, we may rise to the life immortal.

The Book of Common Prayer, published in 1662

One of my two most favorite BCP prayers.

It's a great prayer from a darn good prayer book. Why they keep fiddlin' with it is beyond me.
