4th verse:
Come, desire of nations, come!
Fix in us thy humble home:
Rise, the woman’s conqu’ring seed,
Bruise in us the serpent’s head;
Adam’s likeness now efface,
Stamp Thine image in its place:
Second Adam from above,
Reinstate us in Thy love.
Hark the herald angels sing,
“Glory to the newborn king!”


Confession of Sin

Dear Heavenly Father, we bow before You to confess that we have sinned against You in our words, actions and our thoughts. We come to ask Your forgiveness and to seek Your great mercy. We come to You in the merits of Jesus Christ, not our own. Look not upon our sins, or our iniquity, but wash us in the blood of Jesus Christ so that we may be clean before You. This we pray in His Name, Amen.
