Gradual
for the Third Sunday in Advent
According to the Sarum Rite.

Thou O Lord, that sittest upon the cherubims, stir up thy strength and come.

: Hear, O thou Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a sheep.

: Stir up, O Lord, thy strength and come and help us.

Sequence
for the Fourth Sunday in Advent
According to the Sarum Rite.

Thou who dost each earthly throne
Rule by thy right hand alone,
Raise up thy great power and shine,
Shew thy flock thy face divine.
Saving gifts on him bestow
Whom the prophets did foreshow.
From the palace of the sky,
Jesu, to our land draw nigh.

On this day in 1392: Sultan Nasir-u Din Mehmud‘s armies in Delhi are defeated by Timur.

One thought on “Advent III”

  1. Christmas season is a tough time for me to do my job and get everything done. The third candle is supposed to elicit joy and excitement. For years/decades it makes me go into a swivet of panic – Christmas is nearly here!!!! We haven’t had time yet to set up a tree.
