2nd Sunday of Advent: Communion Antiphon
Baruch 5:5; 4:36
Jerusalem, arise and stand upon the heights,
and behold the joy which comes to you from God.
(Baruch 5:5; 4:36)
O Jerusalem, glorify the Lord!
O Zion, praise your God!
He has strengthened the bars of your gates;
he has blessed your children within you.
He established peace on your borders;
he gives you your fill of finest wheat.
He has not dealt thus with other nations;
he has not taught them his judgements.
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.
