THE EVE OF CHRISTMAS PRELUDE “Canzona XIV” (1615) The Dayspring Brass

Giovanni Gabrielli 1554-1612

*PROCESSIONAL HYMN Hymnal #250 “Once in Royal David’s City” (Chorale sings stanzas 1 and 2. Congregation joins on stanzas 3 and 4) 3. Jesus is our childhood's pattern; day by day, like us he grew; he was little, weak, and helpless, tears and smiles like us he knew; and he feeleth for our sadness, and he shareth in our gladness. 4. And our eyes at last shall see him, through his own redeeming love; for that child so dear and gentle is our Lord in heaven above; and he leads his children on to the place where he is gone.

Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation; O sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!

O holy Child of Bethlehem, descend to us, we pray; cast out our sin, and enter in, be born in us today.

Yet as each candle gives its flame to the other, see how its own light increases.

*ANTHEM AND CAROL

Fred Bock “Peace, Peace” (The congregation joins in singing “Silent Night”)

Silent night, holy night, all is calm, all is bright round yon virgin mother and child. Holy infant, so tender and mild, sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace. Silent night, holy night, shepherds quake at the sight; glories stream from heaven afar, heavenly hosts sing Alleluia! Christ the Savior is born, Christ the Savior is born! Silent night, holy night, Son of God, love's pure light; radiant beams from thy holy face with the dawn of redeeming grace, Jesus, Lord, at thy birth, Jesus, Lord, at thy birth. Silent night, holy night, wondrous star, lend thy light; with the angels let us sing, Alleluia to our King; Christ the Savior is born, Christ the Savior is born! *BENEDICTION AND SENDING FORTH
