God Is Near
Designed to support the lighting of the Advent candles, this includes a choral opening based on the words of “Angels We Have Heard on High” followed by a call and response litany with piano underscore, then a text to be read with the lighting of the candle. As that concludes, the choir comes back in with the option of adding the congregation. The candle lighting portion of your service concludes with the provided prayer. There are five variations, one for each candle. Reproducible parts for the congregation and 4 optional handbells are included.
