The Collect for Advent

Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of

darkness, and put upon us the armour of light, now in the time of

this mortal life, in which thy Son came to visit us in great humility;

that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious Majesty,

to judge both the quick and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal;

through him who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost,

one God, world without end.  Amen.
