11 Advent One
Leader: The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light;
Children: We look up to the night sky and see the southern cross
All: God has placed lights in the sky to mark the seasons
Light shows us the way, and dispels the darkness
Leader: We join with sisters and brothers around the world,
lighting candles to mark our steps in this Advent journey.
Children: Today, we light the candle of Hope.
All: Even though the night seems dark and cold,
we know that the light of Christ is coming.
Leader: The face of our Lord will shine, and we shall be saved!
Children: In a world where there is pain and darkness,
We dare to declare there is light!
All: Together, we proclaim to the world that, in Christ, we have hope.
