Responsive Reading – Mary’s Song (Luke 1:46-55)

And Mary said:

“My soul glorifies the Lord
and my spirit rejoices in God
my Savior,
for he has been mindful
of the humble state of his
From now on all generations
will call me blessed,
for the Mighty One has done
great things for me –
Holy is his name.
His mercy extends to those
who fear him,
from generation to
He has performed mighty
deeds with his arm;
he has scattered those who
are proud in their inmost
He has brought down rulers
from their thrones
but has lifted up the humble.
He has filled the hungry with
good things
but has sent the rich away
He has helped his servant Israel,
remembering to be merciful
to Abraham and his
descendants forever,
just as he promised our


Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Joy to the World

Joy to the world! The Lord is come; let earth receive her King. Let every heart prepare Him room, and heaven and nature sing, and heaven and nature sing, and heaven, and heaven and nature sing.

Joy to the world! the Savior reigns; Let men their songs employ, While fileds and floods, rocks, hills and plains repeat the sounding joy, repeat the sounding joy, repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

No more let sin and sorrow grow, Nor thorns infest the ground. He comes to make His blessings flow far as the curse is found, far as the curse is found, far as, far as the curse is found.

He rules the world with truth and grace, and makes the nations prove the glories of His righteousness, and wonders of His love, and wonders of His love, and wonders, and wonders, of His love.

Joyful, Joyful, We Adore You

Joyful, Joyful, We Adore You, God of glory, Lord of light; Angels lifting praise before You sing throughout this holy night. In a manger lies a Baby- Child of Mary, Son of God. Voices joined in joyful chorus Praise You for your gift of love.

All your works delcare Your glory; All creation joins to sing. Praise resounds as earth rejoices in the birth of Christ, the King. Shepherds kneel before the Infant. Trumpets sound and anthems raise as with joy our hearts are lifted, joined in wonder, love and praise.

Apostle’s Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth;

And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried;

He descended into hades; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy church universal, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. AMEN.
