Reading
“For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be quiet, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a burning torch. The nations shall see your righteousness, and all the kings your glory, and you shall be called by a new name that the mouth of the LORD will give. You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.” (Isaiah 62:1–3)

Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!

O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord! (LSB 379:3)

Prayer For the Feast of The Holy Innocents, Martyrs
Almighty God, the martyred innocents of Bethlehem showed forth Your praise not by speaking but by dying. Put to death in us all that is in conflict with Your will that our lives may bear witness to the faith we profess with our lips; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
