1st Sunday of Advent: Communion Antiphon
The Lord will bestow his bounty,
and our earth shall yield its increase.
O Lord, you have favored your land,
and brought back the captives of Jacob.
You forgave the guilt of your people.
Show us, O Lord, your mercy,
and grant us your salvation.
I will hear what the Lord God speaks;
he speaks of peace for his people and his faithful.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
