THE LORD’S PRAYER  said together

               Our Father, who art in heaven,
                    hallowed be thy Name,
                    thy kingdom come,
                    thy will be done,
                        on earth as it is in heaven.
               Give us this day our daily bread.
               And forgive us our trespasses,
                    as we forgive those
                        who trespass against us.
               And lead us not into temptation,
                    but deliver us from evil.
               For thine is the kingdom,
                    and the power, and the glory,
                    for ever and ever. Amen.

               THE COLLECT  pray together

               O God, you have caused this holy night to shine with the brightness of the true Light:
               Grant that we, who have known the mystery of that Light on earth, may also enjoy
               him perfectly in heaven; where with you and the Holy Spirit he lives and reigns, one
               God, in glory everlasting. Amen.

               ON CHRISTMAS DAY

               FROM PSALM 51

               Open my lips, O Lord, *
                   and my mouth shall proclaim your praise.
               Create in me a clean heart, O God, *
                   and renew a right spirit within me.
               Cast me not away from your presence *
                   and take not your holy Spirit from me.
